Pub Opens Tomorrow!! 

by Lorraine Englert 

This weekend the place to 
be at LVC will be the Grand 
Opening of the newly created 
pub, which is nicknamed The 
Underground. Bringing the 
pub into existence has 
involved the joint cooperation 
of many campus organiza- 
tions. The goal in creating 
such a location is to have a 
place where everyone can go 
to relax and enjoy themselves. 

The entrance to the pub 
itself is located on Sheridan 
Avenue; it will be open from 
9PM to 1AM, every Friday 
and Saturday night. There 
will be no admittance from 
within the college center. If 
students wish to use the 
facilities in the college center, 
their hands will be stamped to 
allow reentry. 

Plans for the Grand 

Opening include a dance 
hosted by FM104's Jim Payne 
on Friday night. The food 
available will be a specialized 
menu centered around a 
different theme each night. 
Friday's theme will be Mexi- 
can, and the nonalcoholic 
drinks which will be served 
will coordinate with the 
theme. Non-alcoholic beer 
will be available at all times. 
Pastries will also be served. 
Saturday's plans include a 
performance by the Jazz 
Band and a fill-in DJ. 

The club will be staffed by 
different organizations each 
weekend. Opening weekend 
the pub will be run by 
members of APO. The sopho- 
more class will be in charge 
the following weekend. 

Ruth Anderson, Delphian 

president and a member of 
the steering committee, books 
the entertainment for the pub. 
She hopes that each weekend 
will consist of one night 
devoted to dancing and the 
other to a different type of 
entertainment. If you have 
any ideas for performances 
you would like to see at the 
pub, Ruth would welcome 
them. Also, for those who 
want a say in what they are 
eating, make your suggestions 
to Keri Douglas, steering 
committee president. The pub 
has no official name yet. 
There will be an opportunity 
for LVC students to name the 
pub at a later date. 

The pub will operate from 
profits made on food and 
drinks. There is no cover

Committee Reconsiders 
Alcohol Policy 

by David Cass 

For the past three years, a 
sub-committee of the Board 
of Trustees has been meeting 
to consider the need for a new 
alcohol policy. Last year, a 
new policy, that would allow 
students to have alcohol in 
their rooms was drafted but 
never made it out of the 

This year, that same plan is 
being voted on by the 
committee, and student 
representative Jonathan Frye 
states that he is highly 
confident that with this year's 
committee membership the 
plan will be accepted, and 
passed on to the Board of 

Once the plan gets to the 
board, there is another oppor- 
tunity for it to be turned 
down, but when asked if he 
thought the new policy would 
be approved by the board, 
Frye said, "If it doesn't get 
approved this year, next year 
for sure." 

If accepted by the board, 
the new policy requires 
several innovations in the 
school. First, the Lebanon 
Valley College Security 
Department will be required 
to hire several new officers. 
Secondly, an alcohol aware- 
ness program must be set up. 
Although this point has not 
been decided by the 

committee as of this date, 
these classes will probably be 
integrated into the physical 
education classes, as they are 
already a manditory part of 
the curriculum. 

What it all boils down to is 
time: before the students will 
actually be permitted to have 
alcohol in their rooms, the 
new plan needs to be 
approved by both the sub 
committee, and the board, 
security officers need to be 
hired, funds to pay these 
security officers need to be 
found, and finally, a class has 
to be arranged to inform the 
students on alcohol.

Escape Appeal 

My dad is attending a funeral today— one of his best 
friends in high school. You might have heard about it. It 
happened in Manheim. He was out joy-riding on his 
snowmobile on his property beside his house and he ran into 
a wooden fence — a fence that my dad helped him put in. He 
hit the fence going 60 miles an hour and fortunately the 
young man who had been riding with him jumped off in 

What makes this story even more tragic? The survivor 
admitted that they had "had a few" before they started 

I know that senseless accidents as a result of alcohol 
occur everyday, but it never hits home like it does when it 
happens to someone you know or care about. Everyone has 
heard this type of tragic story before as well as the advice 
that follows. It's best not to drink; but if you drink, don't 
go over your limit; if you go over your limit or even if you 
drink a little, have a friend drive you home. I have to ask 
myself sometimes if anyone is really listening. 

Here at Lebanon Valley, as well as on other college 
campuses I've visited, it's common to hear everyone talking 
about when they "had a few" or "a few too many." For 
some, this occurs once a month, for some once a week, and 
for some, who knows? The pressures of college — socially 
and academically— as well as pressures from home are 
tough. It's nice to forget for a while. Maybe that's what my 
dad's friend was trying to do— loosen up, forget, relax and 
have fun. He's dead. 

I'm not saying that people on this campus are going to 
die like him or in similar accidents. Maybe you will be one 
of the lucky ones who always seem to escape without injury. 
But then again, maybe you won't. Perhaps the worst thing 
that will ever happen to you from overconsumption is a 
massive hangover when you think the sunglasses are never 

going to be able to be taken off. Maybe all that will ever 
happen to you is that you will do something while "under 
the influence" that you wish you wouldn't have. Anything 
from making an "ass" of yourself to missing an exam to 
starting a fight to hitting someone you care about. But then 
again, maybe something more tragic will happen to you and 
you'll have to live with a guilt that you'll never get rid of. 
Or worse, you'll have to live with a hurt that never goes 
away if it's someone you love. Or perhaps worse, you'll end 
up like my dad's friend. 

This isn't very much fun to think about, I know. Alcohol 
is an escape; and when you have to think about the conse- 
quences, it loses some of its "escape appeal." 

We seem to think that because we're college students that 
we need to cut loose, forget and be free from all responsi- 
bility on weekends and at other times. But the reality is that 
we are never free from responsibility. WE are in this world 
with other people constantly, and everything that we do 
affects others as well as ourselves. 

I know that alcohol-related deaths and accidents 
decreased over the holidays in Lancaster County this year. 
But is decreasing enough? People still died. I'm asking you 
to take some time to think about what your responsibility is 
to yourself and to others. Encourage those around you to 
think about what they're doing too. 

It's great that people have gotten on the band wagon 
about being more concerned about the alcohol-related 
accident problem, but too many accidents are still 
occurring. Like I said before, I have to wonder if anybody's 
really listening; and if they are, are they really 
understanding and doing something about it? 

Think about it. Talk about it. It's the lives of you and 
your loved ones. It's too late when you've done or said 
something you'll always regret. And, like my dad said, it's 
too late when you're attending the funeral.

Folger Theater, the only permanent Shakespearean 
theater in Washington, is closing down in June due to lack 
of funds. Scholarship money is drying up all over the 
country, as it's been doing for the past four years, even as 
the cost of higher education skyrockets (if you think we 
have it bad, a year at Princeton now costs $14,000). Mean- 
while, back in Washington, President Reagan wants to 
abolish the Department of Education -to cut the budget, and 
Cap Weinberger says that tapping one cent of the defense 
budget means the destruction of the nation.

were important. Indeed, a civilization was measured by the 
importance of its artistic and aesthetic contributions. The 
arts were central. Italy had court composers, England, poet 
laureates. The closest we've had to a poet laureate was when 
Robert Frost wrote a poem for John Kennedy's 
inauguration. Europe's bright days of the Renaissance were 
teeming with artists. Any historian will tell you that one of 
the most significant contributions of Renaissance Europe 
was not any sort of weapons system, but Gutenberg's 
printing press, which helped bring literature to the masses. 

Even in adversity, the arts remained important. In 1919, 
not exactly golden days for Germany, Walter Gropius 
founded the Bauhaus School, a leading school of architec- 
ture. But as Tom Wolfe wrote, "It was more than a school; 
it was a commune, a spiritual movement, a radical approach 
to art in all its forms, a philosophical center comparable to 
the Garden of Epicurus."* Later, in the '40's, the film, The 
Children of Paradise, was made in Paris. It was a period 
piece that required horses, carriages, and hundreds of extras 
in costume, and was filmed right in the middle of a main 
Paris street. The film is a glorious celebration of life, and 
the kicker is that it was filmed right under the noses of the 
Nazis who were occupying France at the time. Even during 
times of great adversity and oppression, someone seemed to 
think the arts were important enough to keep around. 
Maybe food for the soul and spirit was as important as any 
other basic human need. 

What has happened to our soul? 

Percy Bysshe Shelley once wrote that the poets are the un- 
acknowledged legislators of the world. And he should 
know, because he was writing at a time when the arts were 
direct barometers, even regulators at times, of social

Pledging Season 

by Maria T. Montesano 

Well, here is is — that time 
of the year when you'll find 
people running around on 
campus doing very-out-of- 
the-ordinary things. That's 
right — it's pledging season. 
And what's in store for the 
pledges this year? This is 
what we found out... 

Most of the pledge captains 
and officers agree that this 
pledge season should be a fun 
one. Some groups have made 
a few changes in their tactics. 

Clio pledge captain Lisa 
Stahl said that along with the 
usual services required of the 
pledges (e.g. taking up trays 
and favors), some changes 
have taken place which, for 
sorority reasons she could not

secrets but noted that the first

includes a lot of hard work. 
According to Marilyn 
Alberian, pledge captain, 
these pledges have a real 
interest in their pledging and 
must keep status in the 
organization with a certain 
amount of work on the stage. 
Alberian said that pledging

Lebanon Valley College 
will begin a Masters in 
Business Administration 
program, offered by Philadel- 
phia College of Textile and 
Science, according to Dr. 
Howard Applegate, Vice 
President for Special 
Programs and Dean of 
Continuing Education. The 
program is scheduled to start 
in either the summer or fall of 

The program is designed 
for part-time students with a 
Bachelor of Arts. Require- 
ments include GMAT scores 
and pre-requisite undergradu- 
ate courses in Management. 
Pre-MBA courses are now 
being offered under the 
Department of Continuing 
Education. Applegate ex- 
plained that it is an "execu- 
tive MBA" program designed 
for the working executive who 
would like to get his Masters 
Degree while remaining at his 
job. To do this, courses will 
be offered only to part-time 
Continuing Education 
students, who will attend 
evening classes. 

The Pre-MBA courses will 
be taught by faculty of the 
Department of Management, 
but the MBA courses will be 
taught by graduate professors 
from the Philadelphia College 

of Textile and Science here at 
the college. 

The program is designed 
for a three-year period, with 
students taking two courses 
each semester. The program 
requires thirty hours of 
required courses, which 
include Applied Economic 
Theory, Managerial 
Economics, and Financial 
Decision Making, and nine 
additional hours of elective 

The idea for the MBA 
program started about three 
years ago when the Lebanon 
Valley Chamber of 
Commerce began discussing 
the possibility of an MBA 
program for area executives. 
Last summer intensive 
planning began when 
President Peterson gave Dean 
Reed permission to begin the 
program. Applegate said that 
Peterson saw the program as 
"primarily a community 

Currently there are about 
23 students enrolled in the 
Pre-MBA program, and 
Applegate says he has had 
about 150 inquiries into the 
graduate program. He is 
hoping for an enrollment of 
50 to 75 for the first year. 
Currently, there are no plans 
for any other Masters

Kriegh Scores 1000th 

by Scott Kirk 

Top boardman Bert Kreigh 
scored the 1,000th point of 
his 2-season college basketball 
career as Lebanon Valley lost 
to Elizabethtown, 96-63. 

Highlighting what coach 
Gordon Foster calls "a 
growing year," Kreigh 
boosted his to-date season 
total points to 559, and his 
per game average to 27.95. 
Following Kreigh is Pat 
Zlogar with 283, Jim Deer 
with 194, Brad Williams with 
175 and Wally Leader with 
175. Deer currently leads the 
nation in Division 3 for foul 

Kreigh leads the nation in 
scoring average. Recently, he 
was named ECAC (Eastern 
Colleges Athletic Conference) 
Division 3 Co-player of the 
week. And at 6 '7", junior 
Kreigh has another good year 
ahead of him. 

Foster noted that in most 
games this season, LVC was 
either significantly ahead, or 
close behind by a few points. 
He mentioned the Dickinson 
home game as a good win, 
73-66, and called 
Washington, 96-87, a "Good 
ball club." Other season wins 
were against Messiah, 77-74, 
Juniata, 73-71, Franklin & 
Marshall, 64-60, and 
Allentown, 124-122. 

A controversial loss to 
Western Maryland, 77-76, 
angered Foster. "There is no 
way we lost. That will always 
be a win in my mind," Foster 
said. That score helped put 
the MAC record to 2-7 for 

Coach Foster explained 
that loss of top board men, 
injuries and lack of 
experience are three factors 
which have hurt the team this 
season. "We never filled the 
position for Steve Whitman," 
Foster said. "He added more 
depth in the forward position. 
Leader got a bad back, and 
we had to go to two-point 

"The kids have learned to 
be competitive and are 
gaining experience," Foster 
continued, "but we need the 
experience right now." He 
mentioned that frosh Len 
Bolinsky and Don Hostetler 
have been brought up from 
the JV squad to help the 

With 4 games left in the 
season, Foster hopes to boost 
LVC's present 7-13 overall. 
The team currently ranks fifth 
in the nation in foul shooting, 
a key which might bring the 
wins up in the future. 

A trip to Europe from May 
19 to June 1 will cap off this 
season. Lebanon Valley will 
play the equivalent to 
Division II teams from the 
Soviet Union, Italy, Belgium, 
England and France in a 
national tournament in 
Holland. Approximately 40 
people, including alumni and 
parents, will make the tour. 

"It should be good tor 
recruiting," Foster 
commented. "Hopefully, it 
will help us gear up for a big 
season next year."

those names, you should. 
Together, they have contribu-

team, recording only two ties 
and two losses between them 
this season. 

With a record of nine wins 
and five losses so far, Coach 
Gerry Petrofes predicted that 
his team will probably win the 
next four matches. "This has

enjoyed the most in my 28 
years of coaching," said 
Petrofes. "It's very rewarding 
when everyone on the team 
makes a contribution." 
Petrofes added that it has 
been one of his easiest 
seasons coaching because the 
team is so unified and has so 
much enthusiasm. 

Rich Kichman and Jeff 
Sitler currently lead the team 
with personal records of 
thirteen wins and one loss. 
Dave Jones (11-0-1) and Gary 
Reesor (10-0-1) have also 
recorded impressive seasons, 
while Mike Rusen, Joe 
Truono, and Rich Going have 
compiled close to .500 

"At the beginning I didn't 
know how good we could 
be," said Petrofes. He said 

that when you are starting 
five first-year athletes, it is 
difficult "because you never 
know how they're going to 
perform on the mat." 

The LVC team returned 
from semester break to travel 
to the Mt. Union Tournament 
in Ohio. Reesor and Kichman 
both placed second, while 
Jones and Sitler placed fourth 
and fifth, respectively. Four 
younger wrestlers, Liptak, 
Rusen, Going, and Glen 
Kaiser were within one bout 
of placing. 

The team went on to beat 
Messiah (30-21), Sewanee (48- 
6), and Hampden-Sydney (34- 
14). The squad then lost three 
straight in close matches with 
Longwood (31-23), 
Susquehanna (26-20), and 
Moravian (26-21).

crushed Swarthmore (40-18). 

The team will end its 

season Saturday in a tough 
match at Gettysburg. Petrofes

win, and that is what counts. 
In addition, Petrofes says he 
is expecting the men to make 
a good showing at MAC's the 
following week.

theme of the 1985 Founders 
Day speaker, Dr. Jerald F. 
terHorst, former press secre- 
tary to President Ford and 
current Director of Public Af- 
fairs for Ford Motor Com-

p. 2 THE QUAD Thursday, Feb. 21, 1985 



by Tracy Wenger 

There is something happening weekends here at LVC. It's 
called the Underground, and it's great. It has brought back an 
"LVC spirit" that has not been around for a long time. This 
"spirit" is reminiscent of the old groves, and although it's not 
quite the same, it's great. 

I think it's great to see so many LVC students in one place 
at one time. It's even greater to see such a wide variety of 
people there dancing, talking, eating and drinking, and having 
a good time. It is really a place "for LVC students only," and 
that was one thing this campus sorely needed. 

With an attendance of 450 people on opening night, it 
certainly looks like the Underground is going to be a success. 
However, the true test will come in the next few weekends. 
Will students continue to support the Underground? I hope so, 
because we've got a great looking place. The people who did 

Tunnel Vision 

by Pete Johansson 

The pendulum, as it usually does, is swinging the other way. 
During the sixties, liberalism was vocal, and the seventies 
voiced not much of anything. Right now we seem to be in the 
middle of a binge of religious and political conservatism. Our 
campus is fairly indicative of what's going on nationwide: 
individuals privately hold a range of attitudes, but the public 
voice is a conservative one. This adds spice to life, but it can 
get out of hand. 

I should say here that I'm a person most consider liberal. 
That doesn't mean that I condemn conservatism; in its purest 
form I understand the appeal of religious and political conser- 
vatism and can appreciate it. What does concern me is tunnel 
vision. Tom Robbins is a better writer than I am, so I'll let 
him explain: 

There is a particularly unattractive and discouragingly common 
affliction called tunnel vision, which, for all the misery it causes, 
ought to top the job list at the World Health Organization. Tunnel 
vision is a disease in which perception is restricted by ignorance and 
distorted by vested interest. Tunnel vision is caused by an optic 
fungus that multiplies when the brain is less energetic than the ego. 
It is complicated by exposure to politics. When a good idea is run 
through the filters and compressors of ordinary tunnel vision, it not 
only comes out reduced in scale and value but in its new dogmatic 
configuration produces effects the opposite of those for which it was 
originally intended. 

That is how the loving ideas of Jesus Christ became the sinister 
cliches of Christianity. That is why virtually every revolution in 
history has failed: the oppressed, as soon as they seize power, turn 
into the oppressors, resorting to totalitarian tactics to "protect the 
revolution." That is why minorities seeking the abolition of 
prejudice become intolerant, minorities seeking peace become 
militant, minorities seeking equality become self-righteous, and 
minorities seeking liberation become hostile....* 

This is what is unfortunately happening to us. Tunnel vision 
is causing us to think in black and white, in extremes. Tunnel 

all the work did a great job, and the best way we can thank 
them is to support the Underground. 

We have definitely got "atmosphere" down in the 
Underground. But atmosphere alone doesn't make it a good 
time. The people do. 

If you haven't been to the Underground yet, come. You 
don't know what you are missing. If you have been there, I'm 
sure you'll be coming back. 

It is important that we support the Underground by being 
there on weekends, but it's also important to support it with 
ideas. If you have any ideas for entertainment, see Ruth 
Anderson; any ideas for food or drinks, see Kari Douglas; any 
ideas for "atmosphere," see Joe Ruocco or Kristi Barbatschi. 
The Underground, believe it or not, is our place. 

I hope the Underground is the beginning of a new trend here 
at the Valley. A trend of a positive attitude about the school, 
its activities, and its people. A trend of believing that if we 
really want something, we can work for it, attain it, and make 
a success out of it. 

We've got a great thing. Let's keep it going! 

vision is why politics has become so repulsive: everything is 
either Republican or Democrat, and the idea is to shoot down 
the Enemy. What it's led to on campus and in the world at 
large is Ignorance and Intolerance. People are so paranoid of 
alternative points of view that they shut them out and stop 
learning (identical to what happens when we make Science the 
enemy of Art). Ignorance. Intolerance is a natural 
consequence, and this becomes applied to people as well as 
ideas. This is what happens when we arbitrarily label someone 
as "Un-American" or "Un-Christian" simply because we 
refuse to look at life through their eyes. It's happening in the 
world around us, and don't tell me there's none of that here, 
because if one more person cares to publically or privately 
speculate on my loyalty to God or country, there's going to be 
hell to pay. Tunnel vision is dangerous. We don't need 
something else to retard our growth. 

Think about this before you make your enemies list. Think 
about it before you take certain books off your reading list. 
Think about it before you rashly judge others. We're the 
future, folks, like it or not. Let's make it something.

The Vinyl Verdict 

by Diana Carey 

With Word of Mouth, the Kinks show themselves as a 
classic band translating themselves into an era of new music 
without compromising their past. 

Though not a classic album in itself, the songs indicate an 
abundance of energy that is going to carry the Kinks through 
the eighties. Even personnel changes appear not to phase them 
— drummer Mick Avory is replaced by Bob Henrit on all but 
three songs. The band is still very close to their British roots, 
with essentially the same street fighting spirit as ever. 

Masters of variety, the Kinks display an array of different 
emotions. Living on a Thin Line explores feelings of disillusion 
with the British empire's past greatness. Dave Davies' haunting 
vocals fit perfectly with the eerie subtleness of the melody. 
Though Ray Davies takes a somewhat lighter look at his 
country with Good Day, his underlying message is serious. The 
song takes off with a few futuristic beeps and then launches 
into a cheery repetitive lilt. The lyrics are filled with good- 
natured self pity about living in the uncertainty of the nuclear 

If we blow away the past 

With a bloody great blast 

Make it fast, make it fast. . . 
Nuclear destruction aside, Davies jokingly evokes Princess 
Diana as a symbol of courageous glamor in the face of a 
dismal situation. Humor is only one of the Kinks' fortes, 
however. The halting grace of Missing Persons expresses the 
pain parents experience in cases of missing children, or, on a 
different level, the pain at the loss of any love relationship. 
Ray Davies' melancholy voice melds quietly with the delicate 
piano and acoustic guitar.

Valley View 

by Mark Scott 

While working in the 
Underground last weekend, 
my conversation was suddenly 
interrupted by a huge cheer of 
delight by the students 
directed at someone who had 
just walked in the door. I 
knew right away that it had to 
be none other than our ener- 
getic and enthusiastic Presi- 
dent, Arthur Peterson. 

The newspapers and TV 
networks always do a one- 
year evaluation of a new U.S. 
President's performance. 
Realizing that Dr. Peterson's 
first anniversary is March 1st, 
and after seeing his obvious 
popularity with the students, I 
scheduled an interview with 
him to find out exactly what 
has been done over the past 

In a nutshell, Peterson has 
practically turned this often 
times sleepy little campus 
around. He has awakened the 
entire college community to 
begin to realize the often un- 
tapped potential that we 
really have. In his speech on 
Founder's Day last year, even 
before he officially took over, 
he sounded the theme of his 
administration by using the 
College's initials in the now- 
familiar slogan of Leadership 
promoting Values for a sense 
of Community. His emphasis 
on leadership development 
has permeated his entire 
program for the future of the 

Founder's Day, 1984 
marked the beginning of his 
strategic plan for the future 
of Lebanon Valley College. 
This plan has been developed 
all year, and will be presented 
to the Board of Trustees on 
February 23. All aspects of 
the college community were 
involved, from the 
administration to students in 
what Peterson terms 
"remarkable input." 

Peterson's main goal is to 
make L.V.C. the leadership 
college of America. He views 
the political and cultural 
crises of the past decades as a 
result of lack of leadership in 
america, and based on his 
extensive experience in 
politics, believes it must start 
at the 'grass roots' or local 
level. He wants this to start 
here at Lebanon Valley, and 
for us to be a model for insti- 
tutions across the country- 
For the students, he has 
expanded the scholarship 
program to include leadership 
as a basis for awards, and he 
has incorporated leadership 
into the new orientation 
program that each freshman

p. 3 THE QUAD Thursday, Feb. 21, 1985 




by Pete Johansson 

The Amish are the subject of a quality film that's uniquely 
close to home. Peter Weir's Witness, filmed entirely on 
location in Philadelphia and Lancaster, examines the ways of 
the Amish in a style that illuminates and allures. 

Harrison Ford is John Book, a Philadelphia detective inves- 
tigating the stabbing death of a police officer. The only witness 
is Samuel Laap, a young amish boy (played by Lukas Haas) 
briefly travelling through Philadelphia with his mother. When 
Samuel fingers another cop as the murderer, Book becomes the 
hunted, and must flee to Lancaster County with the boy and 
his mother. 

The focus of the movie is the time Book spends with the 
Amish. They agree to let Book stay if he adopts their ways 
while there, and here we get an outsider's look at the Amish 
from the inside. Book becomes witness to a society struggling 
to maintain its own identity against all threats from the outside 
world — including Book himself. There is constant struggle 
within the community as to how much they should allow the 
"English" to contaminate their lives. 

The film is good because it is as realistic a portrayal of the 
Amish as Hollywood is going to get. The temptation in a film 
like this is to portray a group like the Amish as evolutionary 
throwbacks, ignorant and about to be overtaken by civiliza- 
tion, or as "noble savages," also about to be overtaken by 
civilization. Instead, we find both weakness and strength 
among the Amish; their tight, xenophobic culture restricts 
them as individuals as much as it solidifies and protects them. 
The film doesn't ask us to condone or to condemn the Amish 

people, only to understand their culture. 

Australian-born director Weir handles the film with style. 
There are a lot of panoramic shots of the Lancaster country- 
side, common to a European style of direction and conducive 
to the farmed landscape. Combined with this are close-up, 
softly lit dialogue scenes that lend intimacy to the film. 
Against the backdrop of their land (and culture) the Amish 
become genuine people, rather than subjects of a 
documentary. Our witness, like Book's, is drawn to the inside. 

Ford isn't Han Solo, but he's Harrison Ford nonetheless. 
His cool cynicism is his defense and he's thrown into a strange 
new world. Yet even his cynicism eventually yields to a com- 
passion for the Amish, while still keeping his touch with his 
own world. Book is an outsider and Ford knows that, and 
keeps that subtle distance throughout his performance. 

Lukas Haas, as Samuel Laap, is a cute little kid that thank- 
fully manages not to get adorable. He isn't stealing the show, 
but he's worth remembering for future projects. Kelly 
McGillis, as his mother, beautifully personifies the constant 
struggle between her world and Book's. Her roots are Amish, 
but she is simultaneously drawn to and frightened by the world 
of John Book. She is resolved to her home, but the "English" 
world is constantly at hand. 

Witness is a good and basically honest film of Amish life. 
It's worth a look just to see Hollywood's perception of our 
own backyard, but more for the cinematography and solid per- 
formances. Witness is a quality film, and it's especially grati- 
fying to see something this good come out of Pennsylvania. 


by Pete Johansson 

The Independent Eye Theater in Lancaster is taking a new 
look at an old classic. Their untraditional production of 
William Shakespeare's Macbeth offers a new dimension to the 

Macbeth is the story of a man's rise and fall; the same greed 
and ambition that propel Macbeth to the crown are also his 
downfall. Spurred by the prophecies of three "Weird Sisters," 
Macbeth and his wife believe he is invincible in his climb to 
power. In the end, his trail is too messy; he is killed by a man 
his ego had him ignore. 

The role of the three sisters is central to the theme of the 
play. Do they control Macbeth? Would he have struggled to 
the crown had they not put the idea in his head? Most critics 
say no. Their prophecies are not commands, and while they 
tell Macbeth he will be king, they do not suggest how he 
should pursue the crown, if indeed he should. Every move 
Macbeth makes is of his own free will. 

The Eye's production, on the other hand, portrays a 
Macbeth that has the sisters controlling every move he 
makes. Sort of. 

You see, in the Eye's production, the three sisters are the 
only real characters in the play. The entire productions is done 
by three actors playing the three sisters. All the other charac- 
ters are puppets manipulated by the sisters, except for the 
minor characters (messengers, servants, etc.) who the sisters 
Put on masks to portray. The sisters become the only real 
characters in the play. And because of this, the audience is no 
longer watching a production of a Shakespearean play, but the 
story of three desperate women. 

If it sounds like this may bring clarity to the nature of the 
three sisters, it doesn't. Are they witches? Possibly. The three 
ar e enclosed in a small pentagon, crossed by a pentagram of 
Paper dolls at the beginning, later by rope. That and their red 
costumes certainly suggest some sort of evil, or at least malice. 
Are they human? Probably. And why are they telling the 

Throughout the production the sisters are tortured, either by 
physical pain, mental anguish, or both. Like the ancient 
mariner, they seem to be telling their tale out of necessity, 
certainly not for the entertainment of an audience. The same 
agony their puppets go through they go through. Perhaps they 
can alleviate their suffering by causing others to suffer. What 
is unclear is the source of their suffering. Perhaps they too are 
being manipulated by forces beyond them. 

The production raises more questions than it answers, and 
for that reason it demands an audience that can think. I don't 
mean this in a condescending way, but if you aren't used to 
doing mental work of you own during a theatrical production, 
don't go. This isn't Main Line dinner theater; the cast isn't 
about to do all the work for you. Don't go if you're not 
prepared to think. 

The production is a good one, because it presents an old 
story in a fresh light, and that's what one should expect in a 
production like Macbeth. This may not be the best production 
to make as your first experience with staged Shakespeare, but 
it is worth a look. It'll help if you read the play before you go, 
as the action goes so fast, a lot can be missed. But see it. While 
you're still in college, you owe it to yourself to see a Shakes- 
pearean production.

Clean chords and simple structure are the core of Guilty, which 
is both very basic and very new sounding. Dave Davies uses 
the song as a vehicle for a scathing attack on the injustice 
inherant in the establishment. Sold Me Out, with its raucous 
harmonica, stark, cutting guitars and rough vocals has all the 
characteristics of a punk anthem, while at the same time 
recalling the anger and energy of the early Kinks, as well as 
other bands from the British invasion of the sixties. 

The quirky, modern cover art on the album seems to be part 
of the paradox, since much of the music inside has its roots in 
the past. Perhaps, however, it's not such a paradox — good 
rock remains good, whatever the era.

must now attend in his or her 
first semester, and his plans 
for the rest of the campus 
community are even grander. 

To do all of this, he has 
created a Leadership 
Development Institute as a 
branch of the College under 
the new Special Programs 
division. After a series of 
pilot programs, the LDI will 
have its first full program for 
the community next month. 
Its purpose will be to train 
leaders in all levels of 
corporate management 
throughout the community. 
In addition to generating 
revenue for the college, this 
will broaden our horizons and 
purpose as an institution of 
higher learning. 

This is Peterson's second 
main thrust. He has realized 
that Lebanon Valley cannot 
go on as simply a small four- 
year undergraduate liberal 
arts college. Though he 
realizes full well that his must 
still be our chief purpose, he 
also realizes that as the 
number of college-age people 
continues to go down, that it 
will become increasingly 
difficult to attract the needed 
numbers of students who are 
interested in just the program 
we have now. We must 
boraden our base by offering 
still more attractive programs. 
An MBA, expanded Continu- 
ing Education and Associate 
as well as Bachelor's degrees 
are in the works. Peterson 
sees this as having a positive 
effect on the regular students 
here too, and if it causes 
L.V.C. to grow, not 
necessarily in number, but in 
other ways, this can truly help 
everyone who is connected 
with the College. 

This has been a year of 
planning, organization, and 
getting ready for President 
Peterson. At the same time, 
he has managed to do for 
Lebanon Valley much the 
same as what President 
REagan seems to have done 
for the nation. There is a new 
optimism about L.V.C. ther 
is much hope for an exciting 
and energetic future. At the 
same time, Peterson has made 
himself immensely popular 
with the entire campus, as 
was obvious last week at the 
Underground. The coming 
year will be devoted to imple- 
menting the plans of the past 
year. If Peterson is indeed 
successful in achieving his 
goals, Lebanon Valley 
College can truly be, as 
President Reagan stated in his 
Inaugural Address last 
month, "Destined for Great-

by Scott Kirk 

The Dutchmen clipped off 
their season's overall to 8-17 
after a final loss to Franklin 
& Marshall Saturday, 84-71. 

Coach Gordon Foster, 
although dismayed at the 
number of losses in the past 
couple weeks, pointed out 
that a win over Albright 
demonstrated "real team 
effort" in the 78-72 victory. 
"Albright is one of the best- 
drilled teams we've played," 
Foster commented. "But the 
kids' spirit was up and they 
worked together on it. A few 
of our alumni at that game 
said they saw the best team 
play in the last 2 years." 

On the whole, however, 
Foster remarked that LV's 
season has been "more like a

Lax Team Eyes 
March 16 Scrimmage 

by Tracy Wenger 

Although the men's 
lacrosse team will not begin 
its season until March 20, 
Coach Tom Nelson already 
has his team outside 
practicing in spite of the cold 
and snow. 

The LVC team will 
scrimmage Highlandtown, a 
club team, on March 16 to get 
an indication of how the 
season will be. Highlandtown 
will have more knowledge 
about the game, according to 
Nelson, but the LVC team 
will be in better shape for the 

"I don't know exactly what 
to expect yet," said Nelson 
last Wednesday. "The team's 
effort and attitude has been 
good so far." 

Nelson's coaching and 
practice strategy centers 
around the basics. "We have 

such a wide variety of players 
that it's difficult," said 
Nelson. "Out of 20 players 
who tried out for the team, 
five of them have good ability 
and eight are picking up the 
game or have played for only 
a year." 

Because of this limited skill 
and knowledge, the team will 
not be basing its season on 
wins and losses. The goals for 
the season, according to 
Nelson, are to improve, enjoy 
the season, and be as 
competitive as possible. 

Nelson's specific goals for 
the team include helping them 
to break bad habits, gain field 
sense, learn good skills, and 
visualize things like goals and 
then make them happen. 
Practices this season will be 
conditioning, drills, and 
repetition, he said. 
See Lacrosse, p. 6 

down and then up again. You 
just can't be like that; you 
have to be more consistent to 
call it a good season." 

Foster said the schedule of 
games near the close of the 
season was "murderous," 
and was in part a cause for 
the team's inconsistency. He 
noted that the guys had a 
game almost every other 
night. "They lost both spirit 
and energy," Foster said. 
"And with 3 games a week, 
you'd better have a good 
bench to back you up. We 
had to move a lot of our kids 
up from the JV squad to play 
in varsity positions. That hurt 

So what happened to the 
varsity? "Well, injuries hurt 
us for one," Foster 
commented. "Leader hurt his 
back, and White got a broken 
ankle. Plus we lost Whitman. 
We really needed help on the 

boards, but we had a young 
team and too many individual 
goals. We needed team goals 
and aggressiveness to match 
the other ball clubs. But we 
just didn't have them." 

In looking at next year, 
Foster hopes to position his 
young bench into stronger 
offensive and defensive spots. 
He pointed out that since 
there are no seniors on the 
roster, he won't lose any 
players. He also mentioned 
that David Bandel, at 6 '6", 
Don Hostetler, at 6 '4", and 
Len Bolinsky, 6 '4", should 
help on the boards next 

Foster hopes that President 
Peterson's leadership and 
presidential scholarship 
awards will help recruiting for 
LV's Division III team. He 
has scouted 25 potential ball 
players and is hoping for at 
least a few good kids out of 
that lot.

Reesor Wins Ticket 
to Wrestling Nats 

The wrestling team finished 
its season with the fourth-best 
record in LVC history at 13- 

Defeating Albright 48-12 
on Feb. 6, the team beat 
Gettysburg (30-15), 
Haverford (44-8), and 
Hamden-Sydney (36-15) on 
Feb. 9. 

Gary Reesor, who finished 
the season at 14-1-1, placed 
first at MACs last Saturday at 
134 lbs. He will compete in 
nationals in Chicago next 

Rich Kichman placed 
second at MACs after 
finishing the season at 17-1 in 
the 177-lb. class. He is first 
alternate to nationals. 

Dave Jones (15-0-1) placed 
sixth at MACs at 142 lbs., 
while Jeff Sitler (16-2) also 
placed sixth. 

The team finished seventh 
out of 20 teams overall at the 
conference championships. 
The team also had the largest 
number of wrestlers place this 
year that it has ever had.

Women Hit Stride 
In Season's Stretch 

by Carole Martens 

"With the exception of 
Susquehanna, we have played 
as well as we can in the last 
seven games," Coach Jim 
Smith said of the women's 
basketball team. 

"We've always had the 
makings of a good team. The 
difference is the intensity has 
improved," he continued. 

In this last stretch, the 
women won two games and 
came within ten points in 
three others. 

The season ended Saturday, 
February 16, in a loss at 
home to Dickinson, 69-62. 
The Devils clobbered the 
Dutchgals by 21 points earlier 
this season. 

"It was a great game," said 
Smith. "Dickinson is an 
excellent ball club. We played 
°ur best but came up short." 

Overall, the women won 5 
games and lost 16. They went 
*-9 in the MAC. 
. 'This has been a disappoint- 
"ig season," said Smith. He 
cited a lack of personnel and 
th e team's youth as the two 
m ajor weaknesses. 

Smith named high scoring 
guards Stephanie Smith and 
Captain Dicksie Boehler and 
Penny Hamilton and Ann 
Cessna inside rebounding as 
the team's strengths. 

Looking to next year, 
Smith hopes to add another 
guard and a tall rebounder to 
the team. "With two good 
players, we can win games 
like we lost to Dickinson," he 

Stephanie Smith led the 
team scoring 318 total points 
a 15.9 game average. 
Hamilton followed with 302 
total points and a 14.4 game 
average. Boehler was third 
with 238 total points and a 
1 1.3 game average. 

Hamilton's 212 snatches on 
the boards topped the rebound 
department and Cessna was 
next with 132. 

Hamilton recorded 28 
points against Western 
Maryland and 22 rebounds 
against Albright to earn single 
game highs in both scoring 
and rebounding.

Panel Studying LVC Sports 

by Maria Montesano 

In November of 1984, Pres- 
ident Arthur Peterson formed 
an administrative committee 
to reevaluate LVC's intercol- 
legiate sports program which 
would also include the recrea- 
tional facilities available to 
students on campus. 

The committee, led by 
Dean of Students George 
Marquette and including 
other administrators and 
alumni, will meet with the 
full-time and part-time 
coaches, the faculty and the 
students to get any 
suggestions from them on 
upgrading and adding to the 
present facilities, according to 
Director of Athletics Lou 

The committee will then 
"rehash" the ideas to form a 

report to be presented to the 
Board of Trustees in their 
May meeting. Sorrentino said 
that no evaluation of this type 
has been done since the 
1960's and he feels the 
changes are needed since 
presently, athletic facilities 
for student use are limited. 

Sorrentino views the whole 
proposal as an important step 
in the future recruitment and 
retention of LVC students 
since athletics are a big part 
of their lives. 

Suggestions trom Sorren- 
tino for improvement include 
an extension of the gym to the 
north and south to include 
regulation raquetball courts 
and various other courts, the 
possibility of a pool, 
renovating and remodeling 
the present gym facilities and 

also the outdoor fields. These 
ideas, however, are just from 
Sorrentino. What will go into 
the report to the Board will 
be decided at a later date. 

Sorrentino said he realizes 
the overall plan will have to 
be a long-term one, since it 
would be impossible to 
finance so many changes with 
any present funds, but he is 
optimistic since the proposal 
will finally be going to the 
Board in May. 

Whatever results from the 
proposals will benefit the in- 
tercollegiate teams, but will 
benefit the students even 
more, Sorrentino added. He 
once more emphasized the 
need for student input to the 
administrative committee at 
the meeting, to be announced 
at a future date.

The Underground' 
Debuts to Raves 

by Lorraine Englert 

The opening of The 
Underground ran smoothly 
with 450 people attending. 
Keri Douglas, Steering 
Committee President, was 
elated with the results. "It 
was great there," she said. 
"Everybody I wanted, they 
were there; Kalo, APO, dif- 
ferent people from groups on 
campus were there. It made 
LVC united." 

The general consensus on 
the pub is positive. Here's a 
small sampling: 

"It was a lot of fun. It's a 
great place to have parties for 
the students. It will bring stu- 
dents together instead of 
having them go all different 
ways." — Kay van Kayvanfar. 

"It's really going good, 
better than I expected. As 
time goes by, the attendance 
will be greater each week. It's 
a release for the campus." 
— Paul Gouza. 

"I like the atmosphere and 
it's nice to have someplace to 
dance . ' ' — Karen Karapandza . 

"It was awesome and I 
think it's going to get even 
better." — Kristi Barbatschi. 

"I think it's the greatest 
thing that's happened to this 
campus in a long time." 
— Karen Propst. 

"It's a nice place to go. We 
are able to stay on campus 
and still have some fun. 
Although it would be even 
better if we were allowed at 
least beer on campus, 
however, I don't drink, so it 
doesn't matter." — Andrea 

"Thank God there's 
something to do on the 
weekend. It'll be even better 
when they get the topless 
dancers." — Scott Kirk. 
"I had a good time." — Kara 

"I think it came off better 
than anyone expected. There 
were different sororities, fra- 

Leaders — 

cont. from p. 1 
get to know the students on a 
personal basis. 

In addition, it gives the 
students a chance to become 
acquainted with many leaders 
in the community, who may 
even become welcome 
business contacts. Gluntz 
stresses the hope for a more 
active involvement on the part 
of students concerning college 
affairs. Gluntz and Wengyn 
hope this celebration will be 
the starting point of stronger 
integration betwen the leaders 
of today and the leaders of 

ternities and independents 
down there mixing and if it 
does that, it's successful." 
— John Kiefel. 

"I'm really impressed with 
the number of people who 
come because it's nice that 
people are taking advantage 
of it." — Meg Springer. 

"I like it. It's not a bad 
idea for this college." — Ken 

"Das beste alkoholfreie 
Bier diesseits der 
Schweiz."— Dr. Scott. 

"The high school people 
really add to the decor. The 
crowds are great." — Rachel 

"It's good now but I don't 
know if it will wear 
off."— Trish Werth. 

"I think it's probably the 
best thing that ever happened 
to this campus." — Jim Reilly. 

"It's a cool place; the kind 
of thing LVC needed." 
— Bettina Hansen. 

"I can't believe all these 
people showed up for 
anything on LVC campus." 
— Ruth Andersen. 

"It adds to campus life. 
It's good because it gives the 
students who can't go home 
on weekends something to 
do." — Dawna Diden. 

"A lot of fun."— Nick 

"The Underground is a 
neat addition to the friendly 
atmosphere here at Lebanon 
Valley. I'm sure it will be a 
big success." — Sue Toland. 

Commenting on the work 
that went into making the 
Underground what it is today, 
Keri Douglas says, "For 
people who worked on it, we 
couldn't believe that we had 
actually created the 
atmosphere. It was students 
that did it and everyone was 
needed. I hope people support 
it. I hope they realize the 
effort that went into it." 

Students enjoy The Underground on opening night: Ruth Andersen, Kristi 
Barbatschi, Steve Burd, Jeff Lesher, Joe Ruocco, Dan Giandomenico, Scott 
Zieber, Scott Kirk, Harold Hazlett, Keri Douglas, Mark Iannacone, Laurie 
Cawood, Steve Lefurge, Doug Hamm, Lisa Edwards and Dave Melton.

Nelson noted the play of 
defensive team members Bob 
Carson and Joe Portelese, 
while he said he is also expec- 
ting a lot from Mike and Paul 
Rusen at mid-field. George 
Gray and Scott Cousins 
should also be names to 
watch for this season. 

Nelson, who played at 
Towson State on a National 
Champion team, said that it 
is difficult to gear down to a 
program here where there are 
barely enough players and not 
all of them have previous 
experience. "We could use 
some more good athletes who 
really want to play this 
game — and I know there are 
some here," said Nelson. 
"The team's problem will be 
lack of depth." 

"Although I have no 
knowledge of our opponents 

and little knowledge of the 
guys on our team," said 
Nelson, "I know all our 
games are going to be 
tough." Nelson said that 

LVC lacrosse has a long way 
to go, but hopefully this year 
the team will make a step 
forward in knowledge and

$1040 Tuition Hike Set for 1985-86 

by Maria Montesano 

The LVC Board of Trustees 
affirmed a $1040 tuition hike 
for the 1985-86 school year at 
their February 23, 1985 

The tentative changes 
reported to the Board by 
Trustee Harlan Wengert are 
as follows: 

1984-85 1985-86 

Tuition $5850 $6600 

Student Fee 200 200 

Room H50 1300 

Board 1560 1700 

no increase in the 1982-83 
year (see chart). Therefore, 
although the amount of 
money has increased, the 
percentage of increase has re- 
mained stable. Since the num- 
ber of full-time students and 

enrollments have declined 
over the past ten years (see 
chart), the Board has also 
approved a six year Strategic 
Plan for the benefit of the 
college. President Arthur 
Peterson believes the plan will 

help to make LVC "the lea- 
dership college of America." 

The plan, based on the col- 
lege's strengths and weak- 
nesses, will increase the role 
of leadership in undergradu- 
ates and area managers 

through courses, workshops 
and seminars. The $1500

awarded to 18 incoming 
freshmen next year and the 
proposed changes for athletic

LVC amidst such colleges as 
Swarthmore, Haverford, 
Lehigh, Bucknell, Gettysburg, 
Dickinson, F&M, Muhlenberg, 
Cedar Crest, Allegheny,

Cuts Affect Higher Education

by Lorraine Englert 

President Reagan is seeking 
a three billion dollar cut in 
the Education Department 
Budget. Higher-education 
programs would be the hard- 
est hit under the proposals. 
Spending authority for the 
Guaranteed Student Loan 
would be slashed by $1.03 
billion to $2.71 billion. Pell 
Grant Funds would be 
reduced by $884 million, to 
$2.7 billion. Students from 
families with incomes over 
$30,000 must demonstrate 
need for loans and are limited 
to the amount of demonstra- 
ted need. The proposed 

budget would also stiffen eli- 
gibility requirements for 
federal post-secondary- 
student aid. 

If the President's budget 
passes Congress, it is likely to 
have profound effects on our 
higher education system. LVC 
is already gearing up to face 
the cuts, however, and the 
situation may not be as 
devastating as it appears. 

Kris Koterba points out, 
"The proposals are there and 
the press is telling stories; 
they won't be as bad as 
Reagan proposed." She 
attributes this statement to 

the fact that at local state and 
national levels, networking 
and lobbying is working to 
prevent the President from 
achieving his goal. She also 
cites past experience, saying, 
"Proposed changes never 
took effect, the country can 
not afford to take that risk." 

Many people will be 
directly affected by the out- 
come of the situation. Here 
are a few student reactions to 
the proposal:

political views slant the reality

p. 2 THE QUAD Thursday, March 7, 1985 



by Tracy Wenger 

Contrary to popular belief, commitment is not a dirty word. 
But there is something about this word that makes us stop 
dead in our tracks, sweat a little bit, and decide if we really 
want to continue with what we are doing. 

Commitment may not be a bad word, but it is a demanding 
word. It forces us to take a look at ourselves and decide what 
we really want, and most importantly, evaluate how much 
effort we are willing to put forth to reach a goal. 

Perhaps that is why many people turn around and run 50 
miles the other way when they hear someone mention the word 
commitment, whether it be a coach, a parent, a friend, or a 
girlfriend or boyfriend. Making a commitment to anything is 
not easy, and upholding that commitment is even harder. 
However, I think that in the long run commitment pays off. 

Successful teams, committees, clubs, or people are always 
deeply committed to their group or a cause if you look closely. 
Successful teams are not ones in which people miss practice 
without giving the coach an excuse. Successful committees do 
not work if people place that group's work twentieth on its list 
of prioirities. Successful relationships do not occur if one 
person decides not to put much effort into it. 

So what does commitment mean? I think that commitment 
means having common courtesy for those around you and 
those you are working with in a group or toward a goal. This 
means telling someone if you cannot be at a meeting or 
practice— and telling them WHY. Commitment means if you 
are going to be late, you get there as soon as you can. 

Commitment means that when you are involved with a 
committee, team, or another individual that you are committed 
to, you give them 100 percent effort. You strive to be the best 
that you can be. 

That means that students strive to do the best work that they 

can do. That means that professors try 100 percent to make 
lectures worth spending 50 to 70 minutes listening to. 

Commitment means that athletes give 110 percent at every 
practice, unless they are deathly sick or injured. 

Commitment means that administrators and staff are 
constantly working toward goals that both they and the 
students have set up. 

Commitment means many times putting others before 
yourself. It means SACRIFICE for the good of the whole, and 
if you are really committed to something, you will not have to 
think twice about sacrifice. Commitment means giving up 
some of your free time to help someone else toward the goal. 
If you are on a team, it means going to bed by midnight rather 
than partying big time the night before a game, or even during 
the season. 

Commitment is a tough order. There is no doubt about it. 
But take a look around you — at LVC, at other colleges, at 
professional sports, and at successful people in the world. The 
"big names" did not get to be big names by accident. The 
"big teams" did not win the "big games" just by chance. 
There was a lot of commitment there before they ever began 
working towards a goal. 

Maybe you think that at Lebanon Valley it does not really 
matter, but it does. If anything is to be successful, it needs 
commitment — yours, mine, administration's, and faculty's. 
Take time to look at the commitments you have made or have 
not made or are still deciding whether to make. Take a long, 
hard look. Decide if the goal is worth the commitment. If it is 
— and I hope it is — stick to it 110%. 

That is the only way things get better. That is the only way 
people are successful. That is the only way teams win. That is 
the only way committees or groups meet goals — 

Staying Informed 

by Pete Johansson 

I've got a coconut creme Girl Scout cookie for the first 
person who can tell me three significant events going on in 
"the real world (Quad staff and their families are ineligible)." 
I will personally award this Giant Prize, and I'll be glad to do 
it, too. I'm dying to find someone who knows what's going on 
in the real world. 

It's important to keep in touch with the real world (actually, 
"the real world" is a misnomer; college is the real world any 
way you slice it. I know people are going to disagree with me, 
but without going all Zen on you, everything is connected, and 
the same personality defects you have now will manifest them- 
selves later. You'll find out). Events in politics, the arts, 

sciences, even sports may not affect you now (though some 
will) but could have quite an impact in the near future. That 
you know. What you might not have considered is that this is 
the perfect time to get a solid perspective on the events around 
us. This perspective takes three forms: the historical 
perspective, the intellectual perspective, and the Eureka 

The historical perspective is the most obvious of the three. 
The historical perspective is the juxtaposition of the past with 
the present. This happens when you take a history course and 
find some sort of precedent for a world or national issue. It's a 
fairly obvious correlation, such as when you read the old 
"guns vs. butter" speech and think about current controversy 
over defense spending. This is a valuable perspective, because 
when you consider historical problems, their complications and 
solutions, you almost automatically apply those solutions to 
modern problems. And when you do that, you begin to look at 
the side issues involved. To answer the question, "Would this 
work today?" one must examine past and present social and 
political circumstances. That's education. 

The second perspective is the intellectual perspective. This is 
more abstract than the historical perspective because you are 
linking ideas together instead of events. It also forces you to 
work harder, but it's worth it, because the intellectual 
perspective looks at trends and attitudes and gives you a 
broader view. This happens when you take a philosophy, 
religion, sociology, or literature course and begin to make 
practical applications. Two things happen here: one is that 
problems start connecting. You start to realize why certain 
things are happening and why people are reacting the way they 
do. You begin to understand how different people think. The

"The President is taking 
money away from people on 
welfare and students and 
spending it all on bombs." I 
am so sick of hearing this 
ignorant statement that I feel 
like 'nuking' whoever says it 
to me next. Yes, there is a 
problem. We have a $200 
billion deficit that must be 
curbed, we have people who 
are aged, unemployed, sick, 
and yes, we have students 
who can't afford, but have a 
right to a higher education. 
However, we also have an 
adversary who is spending 
astronomical amounts on 
weapons and who has made 
and is continually making 
threats against our very 
existence as a free society. We 
must defend ourselves and 
our allies against the enemies 
of freedom. To be able to 
handle both our internal and 
our external problems we 
must prioritize. 

Of all social programs, 
education, specifically 
financial aid to students and 
grants to colleges and univer- 
sities probably affects us 
most. Most of us at L.V.C. 
receive some sort of financial 
aid. To many of us, losing all 
aid would spell disaster to our 
education. Society has to 
realize that as students we are 
the future, and that we need a 
higher education to prepare 
us to be the members of our 
society. As it the case with 
many social programs, aid to 
education is necessary. 
However, I question the way 
the system is set up now. As 
with many government 
programs, including 
progressive taxing, the middle 
class gets the squeeze. Most 
of us are middle class. Most 
of us think we deserve more 
aid. If we were poor, we 
could get all the aid we 
needed. If we were rich, we 
wouldn't have to worry about 
aid. The aid system, as it is 
set up now is not fair. We 
need to prioritize. 

Yes, we need social 
programs. But there i s 
something we need even more 
than this. We NEED a strong 
defense. The writers of the 
Constitution knew this. The 
Preamble itself states that 
"We the peole (shall) 
...provide for the common 
defense." The next thing il 
states is to "promote the

I Staying Informed 

cont. from p. 2 

second thing that happens (all too frequently, I'm afraid) is 
you find that solutions are rarely connected to the problems 
they're trying to solve. You differentiate the intelligent, far- 
reaching solutions from the quick-fix ones. It begins to make 
sense why problems don't go away when Democrats throw 
money at them and Republicans yank support out from under 

Finally, there is my personal favorite, the Eureka 
perspective. The only way to get the Eureka perspective is to 
keep an open mind and not look for it. Also called the 
Wingnut perspective, the Left Field perspective, and the Zen 
perspective, the Eureka perspective is a sudden, violent 
comprehension of the relationship between two outwardly 
different concepts. The Eureka perspective happens when a 
sentence about radioactive decay in your chemistry textbook 
suddenly strikes you as a metaphor of human relations. It 
happens when Reagan's budget proposals unfold on the 

wrapper of a Mallo bar. It happens at two-thirty in the 
morning when you're trying to get some sleep. But it can only 
happen if you give it the chance, and to do that you must keep 
informed. All that's required is some basic information, and 
the ineluctable Eureka perspective will befriend you. 

But how does one stay informed? Surely, as a college 
student, one has enough demands on one's time. Thirty 
minutes a day. That's all it takes to read the front page of the 
Washington Post or the New York Times. Do that, and you'll 
be better informed than 90% of the American public. If you 
have more time, read a local paper to catch up on local and 
state news. If you have a TV, watch network news each night 
(I recommend CBS, but the others are OK). Check out the 
MacNeil/Lehrer Report once in a while. If you're up late 
watch Nightline. Turn on the morning news while you're 
getting dressed. Throw in 60 Minutes for a little junk-food 
news, and you're all set. 

However you choose to do it, stay informed. Get a solid 
footing on current events, and you're bound to start making 
some broader connections. You'll feel better, and sound 
mighty impressive when you go in for job or graduate school 
interviews. It doesn't take a lot of effort, and who knows — a 
Girl Scout cookie might be waiting in the wings.

general welfare." Yes we are 
to promote the general 
welfare. But we are to 
provide for defense first. The 
Constitution states it clearly: 
we need to prioritize. 

I am not talking about 
providing for massive, 
wasteful Pentagon budgets 
for $200.00 hammers worth 
15 bucks. Nor am I talking 
about the ability to vaporized 
the Kremlin with laser beams 
or MX missiles. Yes, there is 
much waste in the miliary. 
Yes, we must trim the fat. 
However we must have the 
ability to conventionally, stra- 
tegically and technologically 
defend ourselves. The writers 
of the constitution knew that 

r \NL cotter *ck;tv*r ^ ^ ^ f Us 

\aJ^ he.<- o^j^r e^-e^y ^U.^ ^f- ^✓-y ^ f -/a d^i^K . . 

if we didn't defend ourselves 
that there would be no 
general welfare to promote. 
WE need to prioritize. 

We are dealing now with an 
adversary who is, according 
to one of our presidents most 
successful in dealing with 
them, Richard Nixon, "The 
most powerfully armed 
expansionist nation the world 
has ever known... Since World 
War II the Soviet military 
buildup has been continuous 
and the Soviet expansionist 
pressure relentless." We must 
not allow for weakness that 
the Sovients may take 
advantage of. 

In the 1986 budget we must 
prioritize. We must balance 
the need for student aid, 
social welfare, defense, and 
all other necessary 
government expenditures. We 
must cut the budget or raise 
taxes to be able to pay our 
bills. It is a colossal job. 
However, if we keep our 
priorities in mind, it can be 
that much easier. In the 
meantime though, please 
don't tell me that we are 
building bombs at the expense 
of our educations...

Softball Adopts 
Yogi Berra Philosophy 

The LVC softball team 
takes a big jump this year, 
right into the Middle Atlantic 
Conference. "The team is 
really excited about the 
move," said Coach Gordon 
Foster. "We are ready for 
conference play." 

Softball began as a club 
team in 1983 and jumped up 
to independent varsity stance 
last year. 

Trying to improve last 
year's 4-11 record, the team 
adopted the philosophy of 
baseball great, Yogi Berra; "It 
ain't over till it's over." 

"We lost a lot of close 
games last season and hope to 
turn that around," explained 

The Dutchgals will be 
powerful on the mound with 
Captain Denise Mastovich 
and Junior Dicksie Boehler 

The middle will be 
protected by sophomores 
Penny Hamilton at shortstop 
and Stephanie Smith at 
second base. 

The corners will be the 
question marks according to 

Foster. "We need both a 
third and a first baseman. 
Right and left fields are also 
open as Lori Kaas is our only 
returning outfielder." 

At the plate, the team will 
be led by Hamilton who 
recorded a .568 average, 
seven doubles and a home run 
last season and Boehler who 
had a .295 average. The team 
will also rely on the hitting of 
the diversified Sue Walter. 
Last season Sue spent time 
catching, at first base, in the 
outfield and as the designated 

Eleven of the team's 
nineteen players are 
freshmen. Foster hopes they 
will make the difference. 

"Last year we didn't have 
players experienced at each 
position. We had to convert 
people," said Foster. "This 
year we have freshmen with 
experience at each of the 
vacant spots. Hopefully they 
can do the iob." 
The team's 21 game season 
will open in a double header 
at Washington College March 

Baseball Gets 
New Coach 

by Scott Kirk 

Gearing up for a tough sea- 
son, Lebanon Valley's 
baseball squad is young but 
hopeful for big wins and 
team-strengthening plays 
under veteran Coach Ed 

Coach Spittle may be new 
to LVC, but he's not new to 
the ballgame. Coaching LV 
this season will mark Spittle's 
22nd season. And after 
gaining county, district and 
section titles 7 times, in 
addition to 2 state champion- 
ships, Spittle should be good 
for the Valley. His extensive 
ball background includes 
coaching little league at 
Williamstown for 6 years and 
legion junior baseball at 
Jonestown for 14 years. 

After 2 weeks of practices, 
Spittle commented that he 
would be working with " 
good a bunch of kids as I've 
seen in a long time." 
Although he will only be 
starting 2 seniors from the 
ballclub, he's not concerned 
about playing his freshmen. 
"We're a relatively young 
team, but we've got some 
good hitters," Spittle said. 
"And pitching is one of our 
strengths. Of course, I won't 
be able to get a good feel for 

the team until our first couple 

"We could do a lot better 
numberwise though," he 
continued. "But we've got 
quality in what we have. And 
they've got a pretty good 
attitude." Spittle expressed 
his concern that with only 14 
players tentatively scheduled, 
injuries and academic 
conflicts "...could cost us 
dearly. We could really use a 
lot more ballplayers." 

LV's first non-league game 
is March 20th against 
Swarthmore. Spittle will be 
taking players up to the final 
callout on March 13th and 
14th. Anyone interested 
should contact him through 
the physical education 
department, or through any 
team member.

Men's Play Agressive, Not Flashy 

by Tracy Wenger 

The season is getting closer, 
and the men's lacrosse team is 
getting closer to some of its 
goals, according to Coach 
Tom Nelson. "We are 
practicing hard now in both 
good weather and bad so that 
we don't get shocked during 
the season." 

"My goal is to win at least 
three games — Widener, Ly- 
coming, and Dickinson," said 
Nelson, "and to instill a 
gentleman's attitude in the 
team. Three wins doesn't 
sound like much, but for our 
program, it will be a big 

Although Nelson knows 
that the weather conditions 
are tough and practices are 
hard, he said he is looking for 
those team members who 
want to put forth that extra 
effort at practice. He said he 
wants his team members to be 
self-motivated individuals, 
because if the lacrosse 
program at Lebanon Valley is 
going to change, it has to 
start with a change in 
attitude at the player level.. 

Nelson said that the team's 
main goals right now are still 
correcting mistakes and 
getting rid of bad habits. 

Nelson complimented the 
attitude of Mike Rusen, who 
Nelson said is like a "second 
coach." Nelson said, "Mike 
offers good tips and 
encouragement to the other 
players. He will tell the other 
players when they are doing 
something wrong, which is 
good for the team because I 
can't always see everything." 

Captains Paul Rusen and 
Joe Portelese have both been 
leading the team in a positive 
manner, according to Nelson. 
"Joe is one of the most 
fundamentally sound players 
we have," said Nelson. "He 
is not flashy, but plays hard 
and aggressively. He checks 
someone and no one wants to 
get near him." Nelson hopes 
that intimidation affects other 
teams when the season begins 
in several weeks. 

Nelson is also pleased with 
Paul Rusen's attitude and 
effort. "He's always putting 
out," said Nelson. 

Nelson said the limited 
numbers — the team is down 
to thirteen — will hurt the 
squad. "When you play ten 
and only have three subs," 
said Nelson, "lack of depth 
hurts you." Nelson said 
injuries have already hurt the

Women's Lacrosse 
Readjusts Goals 

by Carole Martens 

LVC's women athletes have 
found a new interest in 1985 
lacrosse. "Twenty-six players 
have stuck with the team," 
said Coach Kathy Tierney. 
"This number is incredible. 
We usually have to go into 
the dorms and recruit 

What the team has in 
numbers it lacks in experi- 
ence. The team has the bene- 
fit of only one senior and 
only nine players who have 
ever played organized 
lacrosse, leaving much to do 
in the skills department. 

Tierney kept the team 
inside working on basic 
fundamentals until last week. 
"I am pleased with practices 
so far considering the number 
of new players," she said. 
"We have only worked on the 
basics. We have a long way to 

Looking toward the ten 
game season, Tierney predicts 
an improvement over last 
year's lone win. "We'll be 
looking to win some games 
this season, and be 
competitive. We'll re-adjust 
our goals for each game. We 
have to be realistic; our skills, 
experience and facilities just 
don't compare with that of 

some of our competition." 

Enthusiasm will be the key 
to the team's improvement, 
according to Tierney. "This 
year's team has a much better 
outlook than last year," she 
explained. "We have young 
enthusiastic players who have 
athletic ability and 

The veterans, however, are 
not to be outdone by the 
beginners. "I am pleased with 
the enthusiasm shown by the 
upper classwomen," said 
Tierney. "They are eager to 
lead and teach the beginners 
even when it means sacrificing 
their own time." 

The women will open their 
season at Drew University on 
March 23. This traditionally 
strong team will have the 
advantage of competing in 
Florida for a week, putting 
six games under its belt 
before meeting LVC. 

"We will have to 
concentrate on defense. If the 
weather cooperates, we'll be 
competitive," Tierney predicts. 

The Dutchgals will be led 
by co-captains Jean Coleman 
and Tracy Wenger. Coleman, 
a sophomore, was last year's 
top scorer and Wenger, a 
junior, headed up the

Women 's Track Competes as Club 

by Carole Martens 

Until this season, track and 
field at LVC was for men 
men only. That has changed. 
1985 marks the beginning of 
the Valley's women's track 
and field team. 

The women will have club 
status this year and will 
become a varsity team in 

Team member Stephanie 
Butter, who was very instru- 
mental in forming the team, 
is excited about the season. 
"This year is a precursor to 
next year when we will be an 
official varsity team," said 
Butter. "To prepare, we are 
working to improve personal 
bests rather than on scoring 
as a team." 

Coach Jim Meyer agrees, 
"Our goal is to build and 
maintain interest in the 

The squad presently 
consists of seven members. 
"Unfortunately we got off to 
a late start," said Meyer, 
"which hurt turnout." 

"We had a lot of interest 
last semester but lost many 
people to sports which started 
earlier," added Butter. 

The team may be low in 
numbers but it is full of 
potential, according to 
Meyer. He was very pleased 
with the two runners who 
competed at the Dickinson In- 
vitational on Saturday. 

Cheryl Stoltzfus ran the 55 
meter and the 200 meter dash. 
Kerry Hubert joined her in 
the 200 and also competed in 
the 1500 meter run. 

"I am happy with 
Saturday's results," said 
Meyer, "considering we've 
only done distance work. 
We'll do much better our next 
time out." 

The Towson Invitational on 
March 30 will be the women's 
next competition. They will 
compete in a total of six 
meets, all invitationals and all 
on Saturdays with the 
exception of the April 3rd 
meet at Franklin and 

Meyer's ultimate goal for 
the season is to qualify 
runners for the MAC meet on 
May 3rd and 4th. "Realis- 
tically, I think we can 
compete," he said. "We have 
some runners who can meet 

the standards." 

Track and field training is 
not like most team sports. 
"One nice thing about track 
is that you don't have to 
work on team skills. Our 
practices are not real 
structured. I am on the track 
from 4:00 to 6:00 but 
workouts are flexible. Coach 
Reed and I are available to 
both teams all day and the 
runners can workout when 

"We are still looking for 
runners," Meyer continued. 
"Anyone who is interested is 
more than welcome." 

Butter added that 
experience is not a necessity. 
"We are looking for women 
interested in athletics. This 
year is training for next." 

Track events include 
sprints, middle and long 
distant races. Everyone on the 
team does not have to run 
however. A variety of field 
events are also offered. 

Anyone interested in 
joining the team should 
contact Jim Meyer in the 
Coaches Office or Stephanie 
Butter in MG 305.

aid. "-Julie Sealander. 

"I think it's fine that they 
are cutting grants for over

don't agree with. The grants, 
I understand, they are not

Even if cuts are not as 

drastic as proposed, students 
will need financial aid 
adjustments. "We're looking 
at what needs to be done," 
says Kris Koterba. "As far as 
financial aid is concerned, the 
institution is going to have to 
kick in money," she states. 

Kris sees a need for stu- 
dents to help themselves and 
to consider the possible ways 
of acquiring additional finan-

need more money, if I don't

Bach's Mass in B Minor under the 
direction of Dr. Pierce Getz, Pro-

Getz described the Mass as

most ambitious partaking in the

The work itself, according to 
Getz, is a lengthy one, almost two

ding to Getz. 

A 23-piece orchestra of profes- 
sional musicians and five profes- 
sional soloists will join the 
46-voice Chorale in its presenta- 
tion of the Mass under concert 
master Hambourg. 

The five soloists include Judith 
Nicosia, soprano; Ms. Yvonne 
Robinson, metzo soprano; Miss 
Sarah Young, alto; Michael Hor- 

ton, tenor and Andrew Wentzel, 

Nicosia is an opera and 
oratorial recitalist and among the 
faculty of the Westminster Choir 
College, Princeton. She is the 
recipient of numerous awards and 
also international competitions in 
Paris and Montreal. 

Nicosia performed at LVC's 
presentation of Handel's Messiah 
in May, 1984. She annually per- 
forms the piece in New York City 
and of her performance here, 
commented, "It was the best 
chorus with which I have ever 
sung Messiah. They were beau- 
tifully prepared. . .diction was ex- 
cellent, blend wonderful..." 

Robinson is a native of Lan- 
caster, PA. , and is currently stu- 
dying in New York City. She has 
extended recital and opera ex- 
perience in the northeastern 
United States as well as in 
Austria. March 22, 1985, mark- 
ed Robinson's singing debut in 
Lincoln Center. 

Young of New York City, also 
soloed in LVC's Messiah last 
year. Her experience in recital 
and opera extends from the New 
York City area to Ohio and other 
areas of the United States. 

Horton has performed much 
opera and particularly early 
oratorial solo. Getz described 
Horton's voice quality as "unique 
to the demands of the Baroque 
style." Horton also provides the 
television audience with the 
voices of three puppets on Mister 
Roger's Neighborhood. 

Finally, Wentzel is in constant 
demand across the United States, 
gaining a national reputation in 
oratorial and opera solos. He 
recently won a bronze medal in 
the national voice competition

Sharks, Kix 
To Hit 
LVC Stage 

by Lorraine Englert 

Two Harrisburg area rock 
groups, the Sharks and Kix will 
appear on LVC campus for 
Spring Arts Weekend, Friday, 
April 26. Other colleges have ap- 
parently attempted to get the two 
groups to appear simultaneously 
but LVC has been the first to suc- 
ceed. The Sharks will appear 
first, then Kix. 

Both groups have very good 
reputations and seem to be on 
their way up. In December, the 
Sharks entered MTV's Basement 
Tapes contest and emerged vic- 
toriously. Success in the June 
finals could lead to a contract 
with a major recording company. 
Kix is presently working on pro- 
ducing a new album. 

Enthusiasm is already building 
for the event. "We're looking 
forward to the possibility of a 
sellout. No other organization has 
had anything with this potential," 
says Marty McCabe, who has 
coordinated the event for Student 
Council. He continues to say, "I 
feel this is one of the major social 
events that we've had in the past 
four years." 

"This concert is a starting 
point; once LVC gets a reputa- 
tion, we can bring in bigger 
bands," says Marty. He com- 
ments also that the new ad- 
ministration and newer facilities 
will hopefully add impetus to 
such endeavors. 

Ticket price for LVC students 
is $5 prior to the performance and 
$6 at the door. Other concert- 
goers will pay $7 if tickets are 
purchased earlier and $8 on the 
night of the performance. The 
concert will take place in Lynch 
gym. "The object of this is not 
to make money but to break 
even," says Marty. "It is for the 
students to enjoy."

MX vs. Budget 

by Pete Johansson 
A comparison: 

If you're a citizen of Saudi Arabia, you enjoy more financial in- 
dependence than anyone in the world. That's because Saudi Arabia 
asks little or nothing from its people in the way of taxes. As a result, 
if you're rich, you're happy. If you're poor, better luck in the next 
world, because the Saudi government isn't about to do a thing to help 
you economically. 

Sweden, on the other hand, demands the most of its citizens. With 
one of the highest tax rates in the world, Sweden demands about half 
of each Swede's income. The result is the best care of the elderly 
anywhere in the world. The Swedish government is be"nt on 
eradicating unemployment in Sweden, and right now it looks like they 
just might pull it off. 

What we have somehow managed to do in the United States is 
combine the worst of both worlds. Everyone complains about taxes, 
except those wealthy enough to legally evade them. At the same 
time, we're seeing too much of our money poured into economically 
non-productive defense systems, while social programs are being 
slashed left and right. Something's gone wrong here. Republicans and 
Democrats alike are terrified of raising taxes. What they don't seem 
to consider, is that it's really not the amount of money that goes in 
that hurts people, it's the lack of benefit coming out. 

The problem is the grossly inordinate amount of money being 
poured into defense. Voting is going on this week on the MX, and 
there's all kinds of rhetoric hitting the fan about how it's absolutely 
positively necessary to defense. No, it's not. President Reagan argues 
that cutting MX will pull the rug out from our negotiations with the 
Soviets. While that's an interesting mindset, that we have to build 
up to reduce, it doesn't hold water, because the last time we talked 
about MX with the Soviets, they let us build 680 of them. Obvious- 
ly, the Soviet Union isn't as threatened by them as we think they are. 
Doesn't it strike anyone as strange that the Soviets have been silent 

about MX when they were so vocal about Star Wars? 

We have more big weapons systems than we can use. We don't 
need any more. To throw more money at the MX and other big 
weapons is economic folly, and here's why: 

Let's say you're the federal government, and you have X amount 
of dollars to spend. Your choices are to build an MX missile or a 
747. Building an MX does not take very many people. It's mostly 
done by computers and robots. Therefore, you haven't employed very 
many people. If it ever comes down to it, the missle can only be used 
once. Hopefully, you'll never have to use it. Hopefully, you will store 
it away somewhere, never to see the light of day. Hopefully, you will 
have just thrown that money away. 

Now let's say you build a 747. It takes more people to build one 
of these than to build an MX, so you're creating jobs. When finish- 
ed, you will need pilots to fly it, air traffic controllers to guide it, 
ground crews to maintain it, airline employees to put people on it, 
chefs to cook food for its passengers, stewardesses to serve Bloody 
Marys to cranky businessmen, and many others. That's creating jobs. 
Then passengers will pay you money so they can fly on your plane. 
And since it can be used over and over again, you can actually earn 
back more than the money you're putting into it. You're making 
money and creating jobs. How nice. 

Things would be different if we didn't have an adequate defense. 
They might even be different if we didn't have an absolutely senseless 
national debt and an indifference from the Oval Office about the poor, 
the farmers, the students, and anyone else who isn't rich or power- 
ful. But the fact is that we as a country have needs elsewhere that 
are being ignored by the Reagan Administration. 

The proposed budget makes no more sense than the MX missle pro- 
gram does. Apparently we are following the lead of the Soviet Union 
in building an inhumane, excessive offensive arsenal while the needs 
of our own people go unheeded. The priorities have become confus- 
ed. Let's get our own people back on their feet again. 



To the Editor: 

"The President is taking 
money away from people on 
welfare and students and spen- 
ding it all on bombs." Please, 
don't nuke me. The present ad- 
ministration has taken money 
from welfare, and from students 

and has given it for the making 
of bombs. Based on the actions of 
this administration, I think I 
might come to the same conclu- 
sion that Mr. Scott would nuke 
people for. The above quote is a 
generalization, but far from be- 
ing ignorant. 

Yes, the writers of the Con- 
stitution were smart guys, and 
they did state the need to provide 
for the common defense. I'm all 
for defense, but I think we have 
it. We have the power to destroy 

the world many times. How could 
we possibly create a better 
defense then the threat of total an- 
nihilation? Some say make better 
bombs. Make bombs that are 
more accurate, travel over longer 
distances, more mobile, or carry 
more warheads in them. But think 
for a minute. Is a more accurate, 
farther traveling, more mobile, 
more powerful nuclear bomb any 
more threatening then the threat 
of total annihilation? In a practical 
sense no, but it does create a 
psychological advantage or an ar- 
tificial superiority. We're not 
really defended any better by 
buying more or superior bombs, 
but we believe it and so do they 
so it works, right? Yes, it ob- 
viously works in creating this 
perceived superiority, but why 
not spend the dollars on making 
a real superiority and a real bet- 
ter defense in a way that doen't 
hurt us economically or threaten 
things like welfare and education? 

Mr. Scott thinks that we 
shouldn't feel bad about the cur- 
rent administration taking our 
educations away or taking 
welfare from our less advantag- 

ed citizens because they are only 
doing what the founders of this 
country would have them do. 
Because those are the priorities 
that are established in our con- 
stituition. Our real priorities, 
however sick they might be, are 
to be the strongest, the richest, 
the most politically influential in 
the world, and have an enemy 
that we can compete with to 
create nationalism and divert at- 
tention from our problems and 
home in the name of protecting 
our freedom. 

There are all kinds of ways that 
one can go about meeting these 
priorities which can create a real 
defense, a real threat, a real 
superiority, and squish com- 
munism, without hurting our na- 
tion, if that's what we're really 
into. We could use the dollars to 
create the strongest economy in 
the world, feed our people, and 
yes, educate our children. That 
would make those sneaky com- 
mies mad wouldn't it. Probably 
run them right out of business. It 
wouldn't do us students and poor 
people any harm either. It would 
probably make Mr. Reagan a real 
See Priorities, p. 3 

Procedure is a word that for 
many of us conjures up mixed 
emotions. To many of us, pro- 
cedure means the right way to do 
things. We all have procedures 
for how we achieve our goals per- 
sonally, in school, and in our 
business dealings. 

In computers, for example, we 
have to follow the procedure of 
supplying account number, 
password, and file name before 
the computer will give you any 
information or take any input. In 
offices here on campus and out in 
the business world, there are pro- 
cedures as to how to run them. 
We have our own personal pro- 
cedures, too, for as creatures of 
habit, we all have our daily 
routine from the moment we get 
up. The way we shower, shave, 
do our hair, dress, and get ready 
each morning is all based on pro- 
cedure. This kind of procedure, 
to all of us, is good. 

The problem with procedure is 
when it crosses the fine line bet- 
ween ordinary procedure and red 
tape. Many people have com- 
plained to me and to many others 
about that dreaded thing called 
bureaucracy. This is procedure 
that, at least according to them, 
has gone beyond reason and is 
now stuck on procedure for the 
sake of procedure. They com- 
plain because we have to show 
our meal cards at the dining hall 
or our ID's to get a registration 
schedule. We all know what a 
pain it is to be denied something 
because we haven't followed 
what we think is a stupid pro- 
cedure. For another example, we 
have to go to the 'Nth' degree 
when we apply for financial aid. 
One man's procedure becomes 
another man's red tape. 

However, we have to remem- 
ber that even when we believe 
that procedure is getting in the 
way of progress, what would hap- 
pen without it? In our clubs and 
organizations on campus, and in 
federal, state and local govern- 
ment, we have constitutions, and 
under these constitutions we have 
laws. These laws are the pro- 
cedures we must follow in order 
to preserve our institutions of 
society. Without these laws, what 
would happen? In law enforce- 
ment, first of all, the purpose of 
the police would immediately 
become undefined. The rule of 
law would be replaced with 
haphazard, random and often 
cruel punishment. People would 
be abused and a real sort ot 
vigilantism would evolve. l n

Internships Provide Experience 

by Sue Maruska 

Experience is a valuable asset 
when college students graduate 
and search for a job. But how can 
you get experience in your field? 
By taking an internship. 

Internships are an important 
part of almost every major on 
campus and there are a variety of 
ones which can be taken. The in- 
ternships can be taken on or off 
campus; most are taken off 

The amount of credit hours dif- 
fers also. It ranges from 3 to 12 

Internships can also be set up 
so that a student can be near their 

home. Students can also par- 
ticipate in the Philadelphia 
Semester. In this, students can 
live, work, and experience life in 

Eric Smith, a senior English 
major, has an internship at the 
General Electric Environmental 
Services, Inc. in Lebanon. His 
position is not clearly defined, but 
he has gained experience perfor- 
ming a variety of tasks. Some of 
his duties include editing, 
rewriting, and presenting slides 
for recruiting and advertising.

Dr. Markowicz, who is in 
charge of the internships for the 
English Department, set up the 
internship. This is the first year 
for this internship. 

Eight hours must be put in each 
week so Eric usually works all 
day Tuesday. If he doesn't get all 
of his hours in then, he can go 
back in on Thursday. 

Eric thinks "It's very good; 
you learn a great deal more about 
work life and a lot more than 
what can be taught in the 
classroom. If you watch the peo-

idea of what working is like." 

As a senior Social Science ma- 
jor, Jane Rupert takes her intern- 

ship at Family Health Services in

wanted to intern and then waited 
to see if they would accept her. 

The most important part of 
Jane's internship is writing a 
general health pamphlet for all 
female LVC students. This will 
inform them of pap smears, 
pelvic exams, and the like. 

Jane has primarily worked in 
Community Development in the

without procedure, we would 
have anarchy. In our organiza- 
tions here on campus and in 
government we must have pro- 
cedure and we must uphold it or 
someone is going to get hurt, and 
it may be you. 

In procedure, we must strive 
for moderation, open-minded - 
ness, and fairness to all. We have 
to resist red tape, yet we must 
keep fairness and order alive. A 
balance is needed. We need pro- 
cedure, but we need to keep it 
flexible and open enough to keep 
it from becoming a monster. This 
is a difficult task, but a necessary 
one, both on campus and out in 
the world.

Cedar Cliff High 
Wins Quiz Bowl 

by Pete Johansson 

A record 57 high schools from 
across the state competed in the 
Fifth Annual High School Quiz 
Bowl last Saturday. The team 
from Cedar Cliff High School, 
coached by Mrs. Carol Diffen- 
derfer, took top honors for the 
third year in a row. 

Dr. Robert Clay headed the 
committee that organized the 
Quiz Bowl this year. Invitations 
were sent out to schools in 
Adams, Berks, Cumberland, 
Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, 
Schuylkill, and York counties. 

The 57 schools competed in 
three rounds held in the morning. 
In the afternoon, the teams were 
ranked on the basis of outcome of 
morning trials, total points 
scored, and record of competi- 
tion. Teams seeded 9 through 24 
played each other, the winners 
going on to play the top eight 
seeded teams. From there it was 
a simple elimination tournament 
until the top team was decided. 

Dr. John Kearney was in 
charge of the questions. He 
solicited questions from faculty 
members on Social Science, 
Humanities, Natural Science and 
Mathematics, and a Miscellane- 
ous category which included 
questions on Popular Music, 
Sports, Television, and Movies. 

Teams competed three at a time 
in the morning rounds and two at 

a time in the afternoon rounds. A 
toss-up question would be thrown 
out worth ten points. The first 
school to signal on a buzzer 
would have five seconds to 
answer the question. If the 
answer was incorrect, the other 
teams would have five seconds to 
respond. If no answer was given 
within five seconds the question 
would be discarded. If a team 
answered a toss-up question cor- 
rectly, that team would be eligi- 
ble for a bonus question, usually 
in five parts worth five points 
each. The team would have 25 
seconds to respond. The team 
with the most points at the end of 
20 minutes (25 and 30 minute 
rounds were used in the semi- 
finals and final) would be the win- 
ner. In the event of a tie, the first 
team to correctly answer a toss- 
up question would be the winner. 

Faculty members served as 
moderators and judges for the 
event, and students acted as 
score- and timekeepers. 

First place was taken by Cedar 
Cliff High School, while second, 
third, and fourth places were 
taken by Cedar Crest, Exeter, and 
Blue Mountain High Schools, 
respectively. Quiz Bowl Commit- 
tee members, Clay, Chaplain 
John Smith, and Dr. James Scott 
will visit the schools to award 
their trophies.

Celebrates 300th 
Birthdays Of 

Bach And Handel 

by Maria Montesano 

On March 21, 1685, Johann 
Sebastian Bach was born in 
Eisenach, Germany, and about 
one month later in 1685, eight 
miles from Eisenach, George 
Frederick Handel was born. And, 
three hundred years later in this 
banner year for music, major and 
minor organizations all over the 
world, including LVC, are cele- 
brating the anniversaries of the 
birth of these two musical 

Earlier in the semester, Dr. 
William H. Fairlamb, Associate 
Professor of Music, presented a 
recital entirely devoted to Bach. 
Two more recitals will be pre- 
sented in correlation with the 
music festival on campus. 

On April 14, Dr. Pierce Getz, 
Professor of Music, will present 
an all Bach organ recital in Miller 
Chapel at 8:00 p.m. Then, on 
April 2 1 , the LVC chorus and or- 
chestra will perform Handel's 

Dettinger Te Deum. This Sunday 
afternoon performance will be 
part of LVC's Annual Music 

Handel wrote Dettinger Te 
Deum in 1 743 when England and 
Austria defeated France at Det- 
tinger. The piece is a sort of 
hymn of praise. Getz described 
the piece as "an ancient extend- 
ed hymn" used widely in litur- 
gical contexts for special occa- 
sions and services. He added it is 
"lengthy and all encompassing." 

The LVC chorus and orchestra 
will be under the direction of Dr. 
Klement M. Hambourg, Associ- 
ate Professor of Music and con- 
cert master; Dr. Philip G. Mor- 
gan, Assistant Professor of Music 
and bass soloist; and Getz 

Handel's piece will be presen- 
ted in the Lutz Music Hall and 
there is no charge for admission 
for either the Handel or Bach

Brown Publishes First Book on Fulbright 

by Pete Johansson 

Dr. Eugene Brown, Assistant 
Professor of Political Science, 
came out last Friday with J. 
William Fulbright: Advice and 
Dissent, his first book, publish- 
ed by the University of Iowa 
press. The book grew out of 
Brown's doctoral dissertation for 
his Ph.D. in Political Science. 

Fulbright (Dem. -Arkansas) 
was a senator for 32 years. From 
1959 to 1974 he was on the 
Senate Foreign Relations Com- 
mittee, and was one of the leaders 
in the Senate against the war in 
Viet Nam. Early in the Viet Nam 
War, President Johnson had per- 
suaded Fulbright to be one of the 
sponsors of the Gulf of Tonkin 
resolution, which resulted in U.S. 
bombings in North Viet Nam, as 
well as increased military 
prescence there. Shortly after 
that, Fulbright began to have 
doubts about U.S. foreign policy 
concerning Viet Nam. In 1966, 
he held hearingas as Chairman of 
the Foreign Relations Committee. 
These were televised and drew an 
audience that witnessed promi- 
nent experts creating an impres- 
sion of severe doubt of policy 

In his book, Brown argues that 
Fulbright was in conformity with 

the more fundamental assump- 
tions about America in the world. 
Fulbright, Brown maintains, was 
not an isolationist, but felt that the 
U.S. had a "special destiny" to 
involve itself in foreign affairs. 
Fulbright's dissent came out of 
tactics. He argues against Viet 
Nam in terms of cost effective- 
ness rather out of isolationism. 
Brown said that about half the 
book deals with the Viet Nam 
years; his is more a book of 
foreign policy. 

Brown's book will be the first 
of three coming out on Fulbright. 
His is highlighted by an hour-long 
interview with Fulbright in the 
spring of 1981 . Brown stated that 
there's not a lot of information 
about Fulbright because of his 
time in history: too far away to 
be news, and too close to make 
the history books. 

The road to publication has not 
been an easy one for Brown. He 
had finished all his requirements 
for his degree except the disser- 
tation. At the time Brown was 
teaching at a small college in 
Florida. Time was running out 
for Brown to finish his disserta- 
tion, yet there were other 
pressures in his life. Brown spoke 
of troubles with his career and 

Rehabilitative Community), a 
half-way house for male juvenile 
offenders. She also works with a 
teen contact program which

Asked what she thought of her 
internship, she said, "I really, 
really like it. I get a lot of ex- 
perience in different aspects. I 
also think the service is very 
helpful for the community and 
LVC students." 

She also added about inter- 
ships, "They are very important. 
You can go through college 
reading books and not get any 
practical experience. It would be 
nice if all majors had a mandatory 

Another student with an intern- 
ship is Harold Haslett, a senior 
management major. He interns at 
Herco and has a rotating intern- 
ship, which means that he moves 
around to different jobs. 

Harold first started in the 
Human Resources Center pro- 
cessing employees. He interview- 
ed prospective employees and ter- 
minated a few. 

Now he is at the sales office of 
the Hershey Lodge and Conven- 
tion Center. He books convention 
space and works with account ex- 
ecutives and convention coor- 
dinators. Harold really enjoys this 
because he wanted to get into 
convention coordinating. 

Next, Harold will move to the 
front desk of the Hotel Hershey. 

Last summer Harold worked 
for Cheryl Reihl in the Con- 
ference Office here at LVC. He 
was interested in coordinating 
student affairs but after that he 
realized it wasn't for him. 

But while working there, he 
found out through Dr. Peterson 
that an internship was being set 
up at Herco. Harold was in- 
terested and decided to take it. 

Harold really likes his intern- 
ship and "thinks everyone should 
do an internship in their field 
because it can show them good 
and bad aspects." 

These are just a few of the 
many internships offered here at 
LVC. Before deciding on a 
specific internship, check out all 
of your options; you may find 
something that fits you even

personal life. He told me he had 
come to a time in his life when 
he had nothing left but to rely on 
God for help. Once he did that, 
Brown said, his life turned 
around. He finished his disserta- 
tion against all odds, and his com- 
mittee not only accepted it but 
recommended that he look into 
getting it published. Soon after he 
got his doctorate, he came to 
Lebanon Valley, which Brown 
regards as a huge step forward. 

Brown started the publishing 
process in late 1982 and early 
1983. The book should have been 
out last fall, but the unexpected 
death of Brown's editor and other 
internal upheavals at U. of Iowa 
Press forced publication back to 
March 22 of this year. Brown 
said that he plans to donate money 
from the book to a church mis- 
sions organization. 

Brown said the book is aimed 
at a fairly specialized audience: 
libraries, historians, foreign 
policy analysts, etc. The book 
will be reviewed in foreign policy 
journals, and Brown hopes may 
be available in the bookstore. 

Brown has tentative plans for 
editing a collection of foreign 
policy articles, and is in the 
early stages of a textbook on in- 
ternational relations. 

Dr. Eugene Brown,Assistant Professor of Political Science, 
relaxes in his office. Brown 's book on J. William Fulbright, an 
outgrowth of his doctoral dissertation, came out last Friday.

Men Get First Win; Beat Lycoming, 14-2 

by Tracy Wenger 

The LVC men's lacrosse team 
got its first win of the season as 
it trounced Lycoming 14-2 Tues- 
day at home on Arnold Field. 
Lycoming is a club team with a 
lot of good athletes, according to 
Coach Tom Nelson. 

"An official at the F&M game 
commented that we still hustled 
through the entire game," said 
Nelson. "We have not been 
outhustled in any games so far, 
just outscored." 

The LVC men dropped their 
three season openers, Highland- 
town, Drew and F&M. 

In the Drew game, the score 
was 7-1 at half, but a lot of miss- 
ed shots hurt the team. 

"We've had opportunities to 
score but have had problems put- 
ting the ball in the goal," said 

Against F&M, Nelson said 
LVC seemed inexperienced 
against a team that moved the ball 
so well. 

"We need more field 
generals," said Nelson. "We 
need the guys to communicate 
more on the field. There are too 
many quiet players." 

Nelson complimented the play 
of defense man Joe Porteles, mid- 
fielder Mark Clifford, and Steve 
Smith, who is "using his athletic 
sense to come on strong for so- 
meone who has never played 
lacrosse before."

Lax Women Lack Skills 

by Carole Martens 

A young LVC women's la- 
crosse team kicked off its season 
on Saturday against Drew Uni- 
versity, who is ranked tenth in the 
nation in Division III. 

"Going into the game, I wasn't 
expecting to win," said Coach 
Kathy Tierney. "I wanted to give 
the new players a chance to 
understand the game and the 
strength of the competition." 

In the 19-3 loss, scorers for the 
Valley were Jean Coleman with 
two and Julia Gallo-Torres with 

"I was very pleased with the 
new players," said Tierney. She 

named goal tenders Glenda Shet- 
ter and Tammy Raudabaugh as a 
bright spot. "They didn't let 
frustration get them down, they 
worked hard the entire game." 

Rochelle Zimmerman, who as- 
sisted Coleman's second goal, 
and Leslie Elsaesser were two 
more new players Tierney cited 
as putting in strong perfor- 

According to Tierney, the 
team's cohesiveness and support 
were the team's key strengths. 
She named the spirited bench as 
a big plus. "The enthusiasm and 
support of the bench is as impor- 
tant as the most skilled player," 
she said. 

Fundamentals continue to be 
the weak point. Practices will 
focus on improving the offensive 
and defensive communication as 
well as the transition game.

Spring Arts Overcomes Difficulties 

by Lorraine Englert 

This year's Spring Arts 
Festival will be held Friday, 
April 26, through Sunday, April 
28. Spring Arts Coordinator, 
Heidi Neuhoff has found plan- 
ning the event "very challenging 
because of problems due to finan- 
cing." Despite these difficulties 
the weekend activities will be as 
festive as usual with booths and 
concession stands overwhelming 

the academic quad, while ex- 
hibits, performances and other 
activities enliven the entire cam- 
pus. Not to be forgotten are the 
juried shows which will be set up 
on Friday and be accessible 
throughout the weekend. 

In Addition to the events, there 
will be many kinds of food 
available to everyone. Both on- 
campus and off-campus groups

Marquette, Vice President for 
Student Affairs. These include 
academic department honors, 
awards in honor or memory of 
others, and a few new awards. 
Marquette noted that no single 
aw ard is based on grade point 
average alone, although a number 
01 recipients have made more 
"an satisfactory achievements. 

The program will be split into 
two segments, with a sit-down

The Jean O. Love Award for 
Outstanding achievement in 
Psychology is a new presentation 
this year. Established in 1985 by 
the Psychology Alumni in recog- 
nition of Love's 31 years of ser- 
vice to Lebanon Valley College, 
this award will be made annually 
to the outstanding senior psy- 
chology major. The basis of 
scholastic average attained at 
LVC and potential for leadership 
in the field of psychology. The 
award will include a one-year 
membership in the American 
Psychological Association. 

Another new presentation is the 
Christian Athlete award, given by 
FCA. It will be awarded to "an 
athlete who exhibits Christian ac- 
tions both off and on the field, 
and by doing so has had a positive 
influence on the college com- 
munity through his/her participa- 
tion in athletics." 

Marquette noted that the Dean 
of Students staff will also

Festival Coordinator, Heidi 
Neuhoff is looking forward to the 
event. She says, "The Festival is 
for South Central Pennsylvania 
and very important in the 
Lebanon Valley Community. The 
interest is there; the community 
has been fabulous." 

Future years may not be so 
bright however. Heidi feels that 

"If there is to be a festival five 
years down the road or possibly 
even before then, things must 
change; different avenues for 
funding must be found." This 
year funding from the state was 
not available due to cut-backs and 
the expenses behind such an event 
are considerable. 

Spring Arts is for everyone to 
enjoy. Come out and support it.

Mediocrity at LVC 

by Tracy Wenger 

It happened again last Sunday. Another "typical" LVC activity. 
The Yesteryear Festival, composed at its height of about ten tables 
with games at them, two hot-air balloons that appeared on the lacrosse 
field for a little while and flew away, and a bluegrass band. How 
many people were there? The typical number. What was everyone's 
opinion of the event? The typical attitude. 

As I was manning the Class of 1986 booth, I had to stop and ask 
myself — Why is this happening again? Why is the college sponsor- 
ing another activity that doesn't work? And finally, is this the way 
we want the 100-125 people who were at the festival to see Lebanon 
Valley College? Are activities like these how we want LVC to be 

And I'm not just hitting on LVC's activities. It's evident other 
places, too. Student activites, athletics, and student affairs. The at- 
titude in these areas as well as others seems to be quantity— not 
quality— a reversal of what I would think would be the logical goal 
of a college. It seems to me that lately, "mediocre" should be the 
middle name of this college, because that is what we are settling for 
in a lot of areas. 

I don't want to place blame, but I want everyone— administration, 
students, faculty, and staff— to step back and look at the job he or 
she is doing. I think that it's time for a little "spring cleaning" and 
reevaluation at LVC. 

Student activities is the most obvious thing to begin with, because 
it's the most easily seen. I've already given the Yesteryear Festival 
example. The idea in itself is a good one. But why does it occur in 
between Helping Hands Weekend and Spring Arts Weekend, two of 
the biggest events in the spring at the college? How many festivals 


by Pete Johansson 

My good friend Billy Steward and I were fishing from a rowboat 
on a small, placid lake one evening last summer. The sun was about 
an hour from setting, and the day was just beginning to get a chill 
on. I was sitting in the stern in my lawn chair (which doubles as a 
fighting chair for the really big bass), and Billy was facing me in the 
bow seat. Greg Hansen was gunneled up alongside us in a canoe. More 
like he was trying to stay gunneled up alongside us, because he had 
a cigarette in one hand and the microphone to his tape recorder in 
the other, neither of which he wanted to get wet. Greg was inter- 
viewing us for his Master's thesis in folklore. Why he was doing this, 
and why it was going on in the middle of a lake is a whole other story. 

Billy was fishing with something or other on a spoon. I was using 
a surface buzz lure because that's what works best. Not that it mat- 
tered much, because Billy got the only bite that day. This happened 
a few minutes after Billy had delivered his sermon on fishing for relax- 
ation, not for fish. Billy says he goes fishing not to catch fish but 
to sit on a calm lake and unwind. The best fishing days, Billy says, 

can a small college support? Similarly, why does Student Council con- 
tinue to spend money each semester on coffeehouses, dances and other 
activities that no one comes to? I think it's time for advisors, student 
leaders, and administrators to seriously evaluate the effectiveness of 
programs they run, and get rid of the excess baggage. It's logical; 
it's good business; and it saves money. Isn't it better to do a few things 
very well than do a lot of things in a mediocre way? 

The same principle applies to athletics. I have to wonder why we 
are expanding the athletic program (adding women's track) when at 
present only four women have made any type of commitment at all 
to the women's track club added this year. Where are the athletes 
going to come from? Is anyone recruiting, or are the team members 
going to be pulled out of the dorms like they were for soccer, 
men's and women's lacrosse, and other sports? The same common 
sense principle applies here: If there are only a certain number of 
"athletes," it would be better to use them in fewer sports with better 

In student affairs, this principle can be applied as well. How? Too 
many policies, and not enough follow through. We have a policy of 
no alcohol on campus and a policy of no intervisitation after mid- 
night on weekdays. We have policies for academic honesty (cheating) 
and policies for pledging. We have policies for many other things. 
But the reality is quite different than the policies. I know that policies 
will be broken, but not to the extent and the frequency that they are 
here. Either the policies need to be reevaluated or else the people 
creating and enforcing them need to really get behind them. 

It's definitely time for "sping cleaning" at LVC. I'm not going 
to try to place specific blame, but the root of the problem is definite- 
ly people. The people behind the activities, athletics, and student af- 
fairs. The people who are making the decisions toward quantity in- 
stead of quality. We got a new president at LVC this year, and a lot 
of good things have happened as a result. Maybe it's time to bring 
some "new blood" into other areas of the college. If the college is 
to continue to grow, the people at all levels need to continue to grow 
and be productive or be replaced. 

are when you don't catch a thing. I know that he delivered this ser- 
mon not for my benefit, but as a cheap ploy to guarantee a bite. It 
wouldn't bother me so much if it didn't work so well. 

We were having one of those two-hour conversations which if writ- 
ten out would cover about a half page of paper. This was annoying 
Greg because he kept having to turn his tape recorder on and off so 
he wouldn't waste tape. Most of the conversation consisted of the 
eleven times I said, "Damn," which followed briefly after the eleven 
times I got my line snarled. The rest of it was spent reminiscing, and 
trying to figure out exactly what it was that I had kept in a Chiffon 
margarine tub in my tackle box over the winter. 

I was smoking my pipe and Billy was chewing a little tobacco. The 
rowboat we were using doubles as a spitoon and ashtray (we wouldn't 
want to pollute the water) so Billy and I have pretty much exclusive 
use of it all summer. Tobacco smoke helps keep away gnats and 
deerflies, although we're not sure what the smell of it on a lure does 
to fish. Once I caught a fish and found a cigarette butt in its belly, 
so for a while Billy and I were fishing with cigar butts and Skoal stuck 
on wads of bubble gum. No luck. 

Of course it wasn't a perfect fishing trip. To have one of those you 
need two or three big thermoses full of hot coffee, and a cooler full 
of ham and cheese sandwiches (or, sammiches as they're usually refer- 
red to). The key to this is to keep the sammiches behind you and the 
tackle box in front of you, so there's never any doubt as to which 
is for which. Not that anything in your tackle box is going to look 
that appetizing, but things can happen to a sammich on a hot day that 
just aren't natural. 

Since we didn't have any coffee or sammiches, and dinnertime was 
rolling around, Billy and I decided it was time for our last three casts. 
This is how most fishing trips wind up. No one can stand to make 
just one last cast, but three usually help you walk away from a lake 
in peace, especially if you haven't had a bite all day. This is also a 
time when a miraculous thing usually happens. All day long you have 
been trying to decide which lure to use. You keep trying different 
ones, because you're not sure which lure works the best. When it 
comes down to the last three casts, all of a sudden you know exactly 
which lure you are going to use. It takes all of four seconds to decide, 
and it is a ruthless time, because you can easily throw out the old 
for the new, or put aside something you've sworn by (and at) all day. 

Billy and I had supper and a few beers that night. We haven't gone 
fishing together since then, and I don't know that time when we will 
next. Maybe it'll be this summer. And maybe I'll be the one to get 
the bite this time.

Star Wars 

by Mark Scott 

Last year, President Reagan 
unveiled a revolutionary program 
that shows a surprising amount of 
idealism for a President so often 
looked at as a narrow-minded 
realist. He proposed a multi- 
billion-dollar research program to 
develop a defense system that 
may ultimately make nuclear 
missiles obsolete. The Strategic 
Defense Initiative, or Star Wars, 
as the media has named it, is the 

In the time since it was first 
proposed, it has become one of 
the most controversial issues at 
hand today. Opinions from "it's 
so neat" to cautious optimism to 
staunch opposition abound. The 
opposition opposes it because it 
is viewed as giving the U.S. an 
unfair advantage or that it violates 
present treaties and premises. 
Others are afraid that it will pro- 
voke the Soviets to do something 
rash out of fear. Skeptics fear that 
it couldn't be made fool-proof 
and that it can't be proven until 
a real test, something that we 
must avoid at all costs. 

I must point out several things 
about Star Wars. First of all, it's 
only a research program at this 
point. There are no plans to in- 
stall it now or in the near future. 
Second, the Soviets have been 
researching this too, despite all 
the commotion they are raising 
about it. Third, in the forms be- 
ing talked about now, it would 
probably not violate any existing 
treaties. Even if it did, the treaty 
most often cited by opponents, 
the ABM treaty which outlaws 
Anti-Ballistic Missiles (short- 
range defensive missiles design- 
ed to destory incoming offensive 
missiles) has almost certainly 
been violated by the Soviets 
already. Fourth, and finally, op- 
ponents state that Star Wars 
would forever alter the basic 
premise of our current balance of 
power. This premise is very apt- 
ly known as MAD. It stands for 
Mutual Assumed Destruction, 
and it means that if one super- 
power nukes the other, they know 
they are going to get nuked back. 
Proponents of Star Wars propose 
a counter strategy known as 
SANE for Security Against 
Nuclear Extinction. 

If we can develop a system that 
can defend us without having t° 
rely on offensive capabilities' 
perhaps we can even disarm 3,1 
or most of our nuclear missile 
and make the world safe again- 
There is so much promise in an

To the Editor: 

This letter is being written to 
diffuse any misconceptions that 
have circulated about a recently- 
established organization on this 
campus, and to divest it of the 
aura of elitism that has improper- 
ly been foisted upon it. The 
organization of which I speak is 

In short, the primary goal of 
TECHNOCRACY is to amelior- 
ate the general conditions of life 
for all mankind with the help of 
technology. Our modus operan- 
di is to work for peaceable prog- 
ress and change within the 
machinations of this democracy. 

We feel that contemporary 
bureaucrats and politicians have 
no conception of the awesome 
powers in the technology that lies 
at their fingertips. It is only the 
scientists that can truly appreciate 
the vast ramifications of the 
devices they invent. Those who 
espouse our views hope to see a 
day when a board of highly- 
trained scientists, technicians, 
and engineers will be elected by 
the people to use the technology 
that they have developed as they 
intended it to be used: to serve 
man's needs and promote peace. 

In the long annals of history we 
can find numerous examples of 
the misuse of technology by those 
who do not understand. Alfred 
Nobel, for whom the Nobel Prize 
is named, invented dynamite for 
purposes of mining and construc- 
tion, nevertheless it was soon 

used by the government for war- 
fare. Similarly, Louis Pasteur 
originated his theory of germs to 
advance the field of medicine. 
Since his time, however, his in- 
tentions have been inverted, and 
we often hear talk of the possibili- 
ty of "germ warfare." The final 
analysis proves that technology 
itself is neutral— it is only man's 
applications of this technology 
that can be detrimental or 
beneficial to society. This is 
precisely why an organization of 
the nature of TECHNOCRACY 
is so desperately needed today. 

If this letter is an explanation, 
it is equally a protest against the 
meretricious brand of rumor- 
mongering that is commonly used 
to scapegoat those who harbor 
different beliefs than ourselves. 
The First Amendment to the Con- 
stitution of this great nation un- 

equivocally states that we have 
the right to express our own 
beliefs, so long as we do not im- 
pose them on others. Yet, many 
Americans are prone to auto- 
matically attack and persecute 
those who hold beliefs that are 
alien to them. This "knee-jerk" 
reaction is becoming all-too- 
typical in the wake of the narrow 
and inflexible cold war mentali- 
ty which has reawakened in this 
country during the past five 
years. Such an execrable attitude 
represents a threat to all that this 
country stands for. If the United 
States is to maintain its level of 
excellence, the masses must cease 
to merely react; they must begin 
to think, as human beings should.

Dear Editor: 

As parent who had financed 
two sons through colleges, I 
understand perfectly well the cur- 
rent concerns over increasing cost 
of college education. But on two 
accounts, I like to share with your 
readers some facts that may make 
them feel better. 

(1) On the front page of the 
March 7, 1985 issue of The 
Quad,the change in the total cost 
including tuition at LVC since the 
1974-1975 academic year was 
given. Based on these given in- 
formation, the rate of increase of 
the total cost from 1974 to 1984 
was 139%. But fortunately, if one 
looks at the change in the U.S. 
Personal Income figures from 
1974 to 1984, the rate of increase 
was 158%.! This means that the 
financial responsibility of parents 
to support their children going to 
colleges recently are relatively 
easier than parents of a decade 

ago because their income had in- 
creased more than that of the total 
annual cost for supporting their 
children at colleges. 

(2) One of the significant 
legitimate questions to ask and to 
answer when cost of higher 
education is getting higher and 
higher is: Is college education 
really worth that much? Perhaps 
the following data will help us to 
answer this pertinent question to 
each of our own satisfaction. 

According to recent study by 
the U.S. Bureau of the Census, 
the 1981 median annual income 
for householder completed high 
school, one to three years of col- 
lege and four years or more of 
college were $19,914, $22,823, 
and $26,487 respectively. 2 

Based on these data, the answer 
to the question of whether or not 
it is worthwhile to invest one's 
financial resource for college 
education is clearly and positive- 
ly yes. Not only one can have a 
larger life-long financial return. 
But it is even more important that 
one can also have a better quali- 

ty of life and render greater con- 
tribution to the society as a result 
of college education. 

Hopefully the above two fac- 
tual information will help you to 
appreciate the value of college 
education at LVC. 

Sincerely yours, 
C.F. Joseph Tom

Student Aid 

To the editor: 

An open letter to the 

The recent changes which have 
been made in both the number 
and the value of scholarships 
available to outstanding incoming 
freshmen are commendable. It is 
about time LVC started doing 
something to attract outstanding 

students and leaders. What I'd 
like to know is this: have you 
thought about those of us who are 
already here and have proven our 
academic excellence and 

When I was a senior in high 
school planning to attend 
Lebanon Valley, the greatest 
amount of non-need based aid of- 
fered was the $2,000 per year 
Presidential Scholarship, which I 
received. Because my aid 
package showed that I didn't 
"need" more than $500 per year, 
I was offered no further funding. 
With the help of a Guaranteed 
Student Loan, summer jobs, and 
my position as a Resident Assis- 
tant, I just might make it through 
four years. Meanwhile, I have 
maintained better than a 3.5 gpa 
(Dean's List three semesters out 
of three), been chosen for a Resi- 
dent Assistant position, and been 
active in several organizations on 
campus. Other undergraduates 
here have maintained equal and 
better records. Are we an asset to

If you need a lift this weekend, or just want to enjoy some 
wholesome entertainment, Pennsylvania-Dutch style, go see Alpha 
Psi Omega/Sigma Alpha Iota's production of Joseph Stein and Will 
Hickman's Plain and Fancy. 

The plot is organized into two sub-plots. The first involves the con- 
trast between city-folks Dan King, portrayed by Mike Steckman, and 
j n Winters, Portrayed by Terri Roach, and the Amish clan of Papa 
t acob Y °der, played by Mike Hynum. City meets country when Dan 
a^Hp SCl1 hiS Amisn grandfather's farm to Papa Yoder, and Dan 
n d Ruth become the guests of the Amish for a few days. Lots of 
"anty results as Dan and Ruth experience Amish life - and their 
a nosts experience Dan and Ruth! The second scenario involves 
ov e story between Katie Yoder, portrayed by Lynlee Reed, and 

seTp RebCr ' Played by B ° b Scnalkoff - Pa P a Yoder fo rbids Katie to 
e eter, who has a reputation for fighting, and arranges instead a 

Am"^ t0 Ezra Reber ' p,ayed by Kevin Biddle - Ezra is "g° od 
^ tsh/'but Katie is less than thrilled with the arrangement. Will Papa 

Cr und erstand that there's more to life than good farming? Go see 

the show and find out! 

The acting is wonderful on all parts. Especially worth mentioning 
are Terri Roach's portrayal of the ever-so-sophisticated Ruth Winters, 
Mike Steckman's "square" portrayal of Dan, and Mike Hynum's con- 
vincingly stern Pennsylvania-Dutch protrayal of Papa Yoder. Lots 
of good singing was heard as well. Especially impressive in this area 
were newcomers to the LVC stage Bob Schalkoff and Mike Hynum. 
Traditionally strong performers Lynlee Reed as Katie, Martha Bliss 
as Emma Miller, Kristi Cheney as the "enchanting" Hilda Miller, 
and Kevin Biddle as Ezra rounded out the cast. The energetic chorus 
— which included some pleasing solo vocalists, — added spirit to the 
show. The children were cute and vivacious as well! 

The only negative aspect of the show observed by this reviewer 
was the excessive noise backstage during scene changes, which was 
rather distracting. Also, since the majority of the actors did not carry 
over their Pennsylvania-Dutch accents to the songs, perhaps it would 
have been better not to bother with the accent in the first place. The 
show would not have lost anything without it. 

These trivialities aside, the show was wonder fun. Todd Hrico is 
to be commended for his directing, Jim Hollister for keeping the pit 
musical without becoming overpowering, and Richard M. Wilson for 
his choreography.

idea like this. If we can do it, 
great. If we can't, we'll at least 
be likely to make some tech- 
nological advances from the 
research. We have a chance. So 
why not? 

Next topic— Soviet leader 
Mikhail Gorbachov has accepted 
President Reagan's invitation to 
a summit. This is great news in- 
deed. If the superpowers can at 
least talk to each other it will 
help. President Reagan should 
have gone to the Cherenko 
funeral and spoken with Gor- 
bachov there. 

The little stunt about freezing 
Soviet missile deployment in 
Europe if we do the same, despite 
a ten-to-one advantage is viewed 
by some as an excellent pro- 
paganda ploy. But it may mean, 
too, that the Soviets are at last 
under a stable enough leadership 
and ready to seek real arms 
reductions. The summit will 
mean quite a lot to the future of 
Soviet- American relations. We 
need to get to know each other. 

The Soviets and the Americans 
are such different people. A sum- 
mit can help Reagan and Gor- 
bachov to get to know each other 
personally and understand where 
they are coming from. At LVC, 
too, we have a chance to get to 
know the Soviets. Next semester, 
Mr. Joyce will be teaching a 
course in Russian and Soviet 
history and culture. The number 
is HI 341 and it is being taught 
Wednesday evenings. I urge 
anyone who thinks they know 
anything about the Soviets or 
wants to know about them to join 
me in taking this course. Join me 
in an LVC "summit." Let's get 
to know the Russians at both in- 
ternational summit and campus 

A Silent Prayer 

I offer you, 

A silent prayer, 

And though you can 't see it. 

You '11 know that it 's there. 

Look upon its power, 
Shining down from a star, 
Feel its silent presence, 
Wherever you are. 

It shall spread a whisper in the wind 
And rise and set with the sun, 
It shall silently sit by your side. 
And only speak when need be done. 

Turn your heart upon this page, 
If ever you need a silent prayer. 
It shall last from age to age. 
It only speaks with care. 

Listen strong, — with all your strength, 
Listen long, with all your heart, 
—You shall always hear it in despair, 
Whenever you need it, — 
/ bequeath to you, 
A silent prayer. . .

Lax Women Look for First Win 

by Sue Maruska 

■ LVC's women's lacrosse team 
has yet to win a game, but they 
are working hard on it. 

According to Coach Kathy 
Tierney, the team discussed their 
lack of experience early in the 
season. "Winning is still very im- 
portant, but they are trying to be 
realistic with what they have and 
who they are up against. "So, the 
goals of the team had to be read- 
justed to personal and team 

On April third, the team played 
Cedar Crest, losing 18-11. Jean 

Coleman racked up nine of the 
goals and Rochelle Zimmerman 
had two. 

The Franklin and Marshall 
game on April 9 was played to a 
22-5 loss. Scorers for the Valley 
were Coleman with four and 
Jeanne Page with one. 

Last Thursday the team played 
Western Maryland at home with 
W.M. coming out on top 27-7. 
Coleman had four goals, Zim- 
merman had two and Page had 

On Saturday, the team lost to 

Susquehanna 11-7. 

Tierney stressed that the team 
doesn't like losing and that "there 
are a number of players who are 
athletes and are doing a good 
job." She complimented Jean 
Coleman on offense, Tracy 
Wenger on defense, and Glenda 
Shetter, the goalie. 

Also recognized was Rochelle 
Zimmerman. Tierney said that 
Zimmerman was an outstanding 
new player. "Her attitude is good 
even after the lopsided defeats," 
she said. 

Individual Efforts Highlight 
Men's Track Team 

by Tracy Wenger 

The most impressive thing 
about the men's track team so far 
this season, according to Coach 
Kent Reed, is the fact that Dave 
Kurjiaka beat a javelin thrower 
from Juniata, Gino Peri, who was 
ranked fourth in the nation in 
Division III last year. 

Reed expects Kurjiaka to be 
throwing over 200 'next week; he 
needs 206' 8" to qualify for 

John Hibshman was "running 
very well," according to Reed, 
but a sore leg has kept him from 
performing to his potential in the 
last several meets. 

Against Ursinus on April 2, 
Kurjiaka won the javelin with a 
throw of 176'6'/2". Second 
places were taken by Bob 
Rosenberger in the shot (40' 1") 
and Fred Valente in the discus 
(120'11V£"). Discus thrower 
Mark Fetter placed third 
(120'4'/2") as did runner Chris 
Jasman in the 1500 meter (4:37). 

Kurjiaka placed second in the 
javelin (182 '3") against Franklin 
and Marshall and Widener on 
April 9. Rosenberger took third 
in the shot with a throw of 
31'llVi". Hibshman recorded 
what Reed terms a "good time" 
in the 1500 (4:09). Scott Staller 
was a triple winner as he placed 
second in the triple jump (39'7"), 
third in the 100 meter run (12.5) 
and third in the 200 meter run 

(25.5). Valente placed third in the 
discus event with a throw of 
121 '4", and Bob Rogers placed 
fourth in the triple jump with a 
distance of 3 8 ' 2 " • 
Last Saturday two men placed 
at the Messiah Invitational. Kur- 
jiaka continued to close in on his 
200' mark as he placed first with 
a throw of 193 , 10 1 / 2 " in the 
javelin. Jasman placed sixth in the 
10,000 meter run.

Men Beat Dickinson, 14-7; 
Play ' 'Smart Lacrosse 9 ' 

by Tracy Wenger 

It could have been the presence 
of honorary sideline coach Presi- 
dent Arthur Peterson. It could 
have been that the team converted 
on shots like it never did before. 
It could have been that the team 
responded to game situations bet- 
ter than ever. More than likely, 
it was a combination of these 
things that caused the LVC men's 
lacrosse team to play good, smart 
lacrosse and allowed them to beat 
Dickinson 14-7 last Saturday. 

Of the honorary coach Presi- 
dent Peterson, Coach Tom 
Nelson said, "He inspired us and 
it was great to have him there. I 
already told him that if he doesn't 
come to our next game— he's 
fired." Nelson laughed. 

Concerning the team's play in 
the Dickinson game, Nelson said, 
"The team responded to certain 
things that we've been trying to 
do all season." 

Although the defense had a few 
too many fouls due to inex- 
perience, the team finally put 
together things they've been 
working on all season for the vic- 
tory over Dickinson. The offense 
came alive, and the defense was 

George Gray and Scott Brady 
each had four goals in the game, 
while Brade Harmon and Mike 
Rusen each had two. Paul Rusen 
and Mark Clifford rounded out 
the scoring, with one apiece. 
"Mike Rusen has been great up 
and down the field— he has a 
great attitude and he's a good 
player," said Nelson. 

Earlier in the week, the team 
lost a disappointing game in dou- 
ble overtime, 7-6, to Haverford. 
In a game they were winning 5-2 
at half, the LVC men lost their 
lead and scored with two seconds 
left in the game to tie it up. 

The offense missed the goal 
eight times in the third quarter, 
while Haverford scored two 
goals. "We were forcing the 
ball," said Nelson, "and had no 
ball control." A number of other 
things went wrong in that game, 
and everyone contributed a little 
to the loss, according to Nelson. 

"We should have run time off 
the clock instead of rushing the 
ball," he said. Mental 
mistakes— little constant ones that 
catch up to a team after a while— 
also contributed to the loss. 

The men lost to Western 
Maryland 17-6 for some of the 
same reasons— too many 
mistakes. "Although we made 
too many errors and Western 
Maryland just had too many subs, 
the game brought us closer 
together as a team. It was a good

Your attention is called to page 36 of the 1983-85 
Catalog Issue which states: "A satisfactory settlement 
of all College accounts is required before grades are 
released, transcripts are sent, honorable dismissal 
granted, or degree conferred." 

In addition, those of you who have borrowed 
money through the National Direct Student Loan 
(NDSL) program and/or the Lebanon Valley College 
(LVC) loan program are obligated under the terms 
of the loan to attend an exit interview. This required 
exit interview was scheduled for 6:00 P.M. on Mon- 
day, April 15, 1985, in Room A-201 of the Ad- 
ministration Building. If you did not attend, contact 
the Financial Aid Office Immediately! 

this institution? I think so. Where 
is our incentive to stay here? If 
you can afford to set aside 
eighteen $5,000 scholarships for 
incoming freshmen on whom you 
must take a risk, certainly there 
must be some assistance for those 
of us who have already proven 
ourselves in a college setting. By 
the way, I hear that the Presiden- 
tial Scholarships have been 
replaced by a new scholarship, 
valued at as much as $3,000 per 
year. My tuition has gone up, too. 
Shouldn't the amount of my 
scholarship be increased as well? 

I understand the importance of 
attracting top-notch students and 
leaders to LVC. But why not of- 
fer some incentive for continued 
achievement? Some schools offer 
money off the following 
semester's bill for students who 
have maintained high averages 
the preceding semester. Why not 
form an ad-hoc committee to 
discuss this proposal? Or perhaps 
you have other suggestions. I 
anxiously await your response in 
the next issue of The Quad.

Yesteryear Festival 

by Carole Martens 

Moves to Fall 

The TV 8 Sky Skimmer and the 
CR Friendly Markets' hot air 
balloons were the highlight of the 
1985 Yesteryear Festival on Sun- 
day, April 14. 

The crowd was entertained by 
the Sadie Green Springs Ragtime 
Jug Band, sponsored by the Stu- 
dent Council. Student clowns 
travelled around the festival all 
day to add to the fun. 

Cold weather, conflicts on 
campus and in the community, 
and publicity as a smaller event 
than last year kept the size of the 
crowds small. 

Cheryl Reihl, director of Stu- 
dent Activities, explained the 

festival began last year as the 
responsibility of the junior intern. 
There is no one in that position 
this year, but the organizations 
worked with Reihl to continue the 
tradition despite the lack of an 

Alpha Phi Omega and Gamma 
Sigma Sigma provided security 
and worked the gate. Thirteen 
clubs sponsored booths. 

Children flocked to booths such 
as the Hispanic Club's poster 
toss, the Class of 87 's balloon 
darts game and the French Club's 
face painting and penny candy. 

For the adults, the Young 
Republicans sponsored Political 

Trivia, the Green Blotter sold 
"Of Seekings and Shadows," a 
collection of students' poems and 
the Biology Club held a soda toss. 
Everyone stopped for Sinfonia's 
hamburgers and Project's 

Next year will see a change for 
the festival. It will move to the 
fall. Reihl already has the posi- 
tion of organizer filled and two 
companies have committed to 
sponsoring hot air balloons. 

"The fall isn't as busy as the 
spring for clubs and for the com- 
munity," said Reihl. "We will 
have many more booths, and ac- 
tivities and will publicize for a 
much larger event." 

Library Proposes Improvements 

by Maria Montesano 

Until now, any changes that 
could have been made to the LVC 
library without money have been 
made. When we return in the fall, 
the first phase of a proposed plan 
for the library will be completed 
to include new shelving and a 
new layout of materials, accor- 
ding to William E. Hough III, 

When plans for a new library 
were "put on the back burner," 

Hough said he devised a proposal 
to attack the three major problems 
presently affecting the library. 
These include problems with 
shelving, noise control and 
climate control. 

Hough said that a library is 
considered at its working capaci- 
ty when its shelves are over 80 
percent full. Presently, the LV 
library is at 83 percent with 
books, and over 88 percent with

bound periodicals. This means 
that additional shelving is 
necessary. Also, there is a need 
for replacement of other shelving 
due to its difficult use and the 
damage it causes to books. 

Problems with noise control 
come from walking, talking, the 
microfilm readers and the copy 
machine. These sounds seem to 
echo throughout the library mak- 
ing research and study difficult. 
Problems with climate control in- 
clude the heating and cooling of 
the building and its ventilation. 

In his 1984 proposal, Hough 
suggested actions to attack each 
of these problems. He suggests 
two phases for the shelving pro- 
blem. Phase I is to purchase new 
shelving and rearrange the library 
in a more useful manner. Books 
A-P will be located on the second 
floor and the bound periodicals 
will be moved to the basement 
along with books Q-Z. 

On the first floor, the reference 
section will be moved to where 
the bound periodicals are, and the 
microfilm collection, readers and 
indexes will be moved to the pre- 
sent reference area, hopefully 
isolating the machine noise to that 
far corner. New shelving will be 
more spread out and tables will 
be spread throughout the first

floor in a more spacious fashion. 
Hough said that this plan will 
hopefully make the library more 
functional and move its "store- 
house" appearance off the main 
floor. This phase of the proposal 
has been approved for financing, 
to be finished for the beginning 
of the 85-86 schoolyear. 

Phase II of the shelving plan in- 
cludes the purchase of compact 
shelving for the bound periodical 
collection. This phase, however, 
is a costly one but would make 
more efficient use of shelf space. 
Hough said though that Phase I of 
the shelving plan will be good for 
five years. 

Still, no provisions have been 
made to improve the noise and 
climate control problems. Hough 
noted that the heat in the floor 
causes problems with running 

College to Provide Micro Lab 

)_'!() I.MMU, .--..-.-M.n» 

by Melissa Huffman 

The fall semester of 1985 will 
introduce to LVC the new micro- 
computer lab, set up for student 
use. It will consist of one room 
containing 17 micro-computers, 
ten IBM compatible computers, 
seven Apple HE professional 
systems, and several printers. 

Although it is expected that 
many students will purchase their 
own software, the college will 

have software on reserve in the 
library for students to take out. 
Among the software on reserve 
will be a PFS Wright easy-to- 
learn word processing package 
and a Lotus 1,2,3,. 

The locations being considered 
for the new lab are the basement 
of the library, next to the terminal 
room and the basement of the Ad- 
ministration building. Security 

and air quality are the major con- 
siderations in choosing a location' 
The lab is expected to lessen 
crowding in the present compute 
room, alleviating some of tne 
pressure on students writing

and also prohibits carpeting the 
library, which would ideally help 
the noise problem. He said that 
eventually these problems will 
have to be addressed, and he will f 
keep trying. 

Editor 's Note: It should be noted 
that this week (April 14-20) has 
been officially named National 
Library Week by the American 
Library Association. The annual 
event is in recognition of the role 
of libraries in society, offering a 
variety of services both public and 
academic to everyday life, ac- 
cording to Eloise Brown, head of 
Reader's services at the LV i 
library. In honor of the week, the 
library has hung posters around 
campus and put together wall and • 
case displays in the library. 

L i6RA*r ' 



The Greenblotter Society, 
otherwise known as the poetry 
club, has been active since the 
beginning of first semester after 
several years of dormancy. Diana 
Carey, President of Greenblotter 
Society, acted on the suggestion 
of Dr. Philip Billings, temporary 
head of the English department, 
and decided to resurrect the 
society as part of her independent 
study in poetry. Citing a renew- 
ed interest in poetry as the major 
reason to recreate the organiza- 
tion, Diana says that they wanted 
to establish "a place where peo- 
ple could get together and share 
a similar interest in poetry." 

The ultimate goal of the organ- 
ization was to publish a poetry 
magazine and they have been suc- 
cessful in achieving this aim. To 
create the magazine all the mem- 
bers of the society submitted 
poems. An editorial board consis- 
ting of Diana Carey, Scott Kirk 
and Doug Rauch, selected the 
Poetry to be published. Con- 
tributors to the magazine do not 
have to be club members; anyone 
on campus can submit poetry. 

The magazine was on sale at 

Spring Arts as well as the 
Yesteryear Festival. Diana com- 
ments on the achievement, 
"There is no way to express our 
gratitutde to Student Council for 
the money. We felt if we could 
show a good product it would 
create more interest and then 
snowball." Hopefully the profit 
from the magazine sale will give 
next year's club some funds to 
work with. 

The club meets on a weekly 
basis. Everyone brings copies of 
their poems and then discusses 
the work. "I'd like to give a 
message to anyone out there who 
is afraid to come to the meeting, 
that there is no reason to feel 
threatened, because it is a fun 
thing for all of us. We are sup- 
portive of anybody who has 
something they want to share." 

Diana comments on the future 
of Greenblotter, "We are a small 
organization and since we are just 
starting it will take a lot of dedica- 
tion and we have had that this 
year. Next year depends on how 
the members band together and if 
we get new members. You've got 
to love poetry to put in the time.

Students Travel to Capitol 

by Maria Montesano 

A group of 31 LVC students 
and faculty spent two days; 
Thursday, April 18, and Friday, 
April 19; in Washington, D.C., 
on the Management Department's 
annual business trip. 

Two meetings highlighted the 
group's trip. The first was a ques- 
tion and answer session on the 
steps of the Capitol with Rep- 
resentative Bob Walker. The ses- 
sion was cut short since Walker 
was about to speak on the House 
floor with his proposal on how to 
cut part of the country's deficit. 

The group, however, after a 
brief tour of the Capitol, was able 
to see Walker make his proposal, 
from the gallery of the House 
meeting room. Walker is a Re- 
publican representative from the 
16th District of Pennsylvania, 
which includes LVC. 

The second highlighted 
meeting was at The Brookings In- 
stitute, a prestigious economics 
research organization. The In- 
stitute's Treasurer and Director 
of Administration, Neil H. 
Cullen, spent an hour with the 
group explaining the Institute's 
function and answering a variety 
of questions related to the In- 
stitute's workings. 

In general, he explained that 
Brookings was supported by out- 
side funding and dealt with 
economic research and seminars. 
The Institute also publishes a 
number of books each year on 
current issues in economics. 

Other activities included tours 
of the Kennedy Center of Per- 
formming Arts and the Bureau of 
Engraving, and an optional visit 
to the Securities Exchange Com- 
mission (the governing board of 

the stock market) Information 
Department and the FBI Building 
for demonstrations of target 

Finally, the group was free to 
do as they pleased Thursday night 
in the capitol city, and most of 
Friday afternoon was spent by 
many in the Smithsonian Institute 
before the return trip to LVC. 

The annual trip, including 
transportation and lodging, was 
sponsored by the Peoples Na- 
tional Bank of Lebanon. The 
Bank's Trust Officer, Louis Or- 
mond, accompanied the group to 
Washington. The bank also un- 
derwrites the LVC Economic 
Lecture Series and the Peoples 
National Bank Achievement 
Award in Economics. 

The trip was coordinated by 
Richard Arnold, Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Management.

Spring Arts 85: 



Flourishes of green, 
Dancing in the sun 's golden rays, 
Heralding that spring 's finally here, 
— Here to stay. . . 
Birds in the wind, 
Dancing softly upon the sky. 
Sailing on breezes that seem to play- 
—Here to stay. . . 
Laughter in the sun, 
Smiles growing with the wind, 
—of all the people, 
—Here to stay. . . 
Artists with their love, 
Painting rainbows upon the clouds, 
Touching hearts as they go. . . 
Here to stay, strong and proud. 
Flourishes of color, 
Painted hearts shared with clowns, 
Music soothing souls that play,— 
Upon the wind, a Festive day, — 
Catch it now, upon this day, — 
For Spring is here, . . .

So Long, Class of '85 

by Pete Johansson 

I'm too young to be where I'm going, 
And I'm too old to go back again. 

—John Prine 

Don't kid yourselves. You're not ready, any more than anyone else 
is. You're leaving college completely inexperienced and absolutely 
unprepared for what the adult world is about to throw at you. Some 
of you are too stupid to dread what you're going into. If you are, 
congratulations. You've got the right idea. 

The idea isn't to try to change the world. No one can do that, and 
if you try, you're just going to be frustrated. Don't be that stupid. 
But you do want to be stupid enough to believe that you can endure 
all the post-collegiate crap that's going to be hurled your way, and 
still enjoy your life and yourself. The trick of Zen is to recognize 
that you have limited power, limited ability, and limited intelligence, 
as does the world, and once those limitations are realized, you're free 
to enjoy yourself. Jesus taught something similar: Christians are im- 
perfect people living in an imperfect world, and the Gospels are full 
of examples of how to enjoy life in such a context. Even Clint 
Eastwood said, "A man's got to know his own limitation." So what 
if the line is from Magnum Force, it still makes sense. 

Relax and enjoy yourselves. None of you are ready, and that's the 
best kind of preparation to have. Be goofy-headed enough to not take 
everything your employers or grad school professors tell you serious- 
ly. The fact that you're graduating college means you have some 
degree of talent to B.S., so you should be able to recognize it when 
it comes your way. Dare to be optimistic . Don't die older and wiser. 
Die older and stupid.

ricular achievements. Through 
this method, each class' selection 
committee can present many dif- 
fering awards. 

Gluntz's overriding theme is 
that alumni should remain in con- 
tact with current LVC students 
and in turn the LVC community. 
"Our alumns need to remain a 
close part of the college," she 
noted. "Annual giving helps 
them do that." She describes the 
Scholarship Fund as "People giv- 
ing money to people," rather 
than an inanimate bank account. 

Gluntz implanted this develop- 
ment campaign after researching 
colleges including Bucknell, 
Elizabethtown, Albright and 
Juniata who foster the idea of 
Alumni Giving and Class En- 
dowments. "Many 'big-name' 

schools feature healthy competi- 
tion between graduating classes, 
each trying to raise more money 
than its predecessor. And since 
tradition has to start somewhere, 
I'd like the Class of '85 to set the 
pace," she said. "What's more 
important than to play a part in 
the education of others?" 

The development campaign 
uses a class agent system. Two 
student volunteers from each 
class act as liaisons between the 
Devleopment Office and their 
class members. These 
"cheerleaders," as Gluntz calls 
them, facilitate goal achievement 
through correspondence and class 
representation, promoting annua' 
giving. Agents serve a minimum 
of two years and continually 
evaluate class progress. 

The Quad is in need of a 
photography editor and sports 
writers for next year's staff. 
Any interested persons should 
contact Pete Johansson or Tracy 

The campaign program 


begin with the Class of 1985, who 
have set a goal of $25,000. This 
would allow for scholarships o 
approximately $2,000 a year, ac* 
cording to Gluntz. An ° 
graduate will present the f' r 
award(s) in the Fall of 1990-
